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 were your best and worst New Year’s Eve celebrations?
Sentence: When Emmet came out of the woods covered in porcupine quills, he was the only one unamused.
Paragraph: Louisa stood at the sink washing dishes when she felt a whisper of chill air on her nape. She closed her eyes and smiled, leaning back into seeming nothingness. A little mouse of a woman, Louisa had let herself become a spinster in her grandparents’ huge Victorian. Her only companions were spiders, mice, and a very naughty ghost.
Prompt: Describe how it feels to be alive.
Word of the Day: atheling – n. a nobleman or prince of the Anglo-Saxons (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.
