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: Do you prefer crunchy or soft cookies?
Sentence: Arnold Plaggett waded out into the middle of the rushing stream and expertly cast his fishing lure, unaware of what was lurking nearby.
Paragraph: Noreen hated the beach. She hated the sand, salt water, and unrelenting sun. Although she was an indoor person, every summer her parents, the Raffertys, dragged her to Port Isabel, where they insisted on spending endless hours in the uncomfortable heat, humidity, glare, and salty wind. Noreen would read beneath a large blue umbrella, until her glasses were thickly coated with salty moisture, while Jeanne and Ed would swim out past the last sandbar into greener water.
Prompt: Elucidate on your snack preference while writing.
Word of the Day: dilatory – 1 causing or tending to cause delay; meant to gain time, defer action, etc. 2 inclined to delay; slow or late in doing things (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
