The purpose of this blog is to help writers with their work, to be museful or perhaps instrumental in unclogging thoughts. To this end, I am providing a daily question, beginning sentence, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”
Question: Was anyone in your family ever arrested?
Sentence: Little Louise was home alone when the doorbell rang.
Paragraph: After trudging through the snow from the school bus stop, the smell of tomato soup wafted welcomingly to Georgie and Tommy Ray when they opened the back door to the kitchen. Mamma told them often enough that Mrs. Scott did not approve of them tracking dirty shoes or boots through the front door. No, sir. Though Mrs. S was never mean to them, they sensed she did not really like having them around that much. So they kept quiet in the kitchen and never attempted to roam around the house, even when she was gone, for fear of accidently knocking something over or getting something dirty.
Prompt: Name a person who does not know how to keep their mouth shut.
Word of the Day: necessitarianism – n. the theory that every event, including any action of the human will, is the necessary result of a sequence of causes; determinism (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
