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: What do you wish for Christmas?
Sentence: As dawn expanded into daylight, a lone rider viewed the shadowed valley below.
Paragraph: Sierra stayed in the steamy shower, crying, until the water ran cold. The pelleting drops masked her sobbing, not that anyone was around to hear. Lawrence had taken everything, including the dog, she saw when she came home and opened the door to empty silence. Only her clothes remained, piled in a corner on the bedroom floor. As she shut off the water, Sierra hiccupped to a stop – there aren’t any towels to dry off with.
Prompt: Name your biggest irritation with life.
Word of the Day: crapulous – adj. 1. characterized by gross excess in drinking or eating. 2. suffering from such excess. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
