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: How far would you drive/ride for a good meal?
Sentence: All heads turned as Damien Colter swept into the ballroom like a hurricane and headed towards Miss Angelina McBride.
Paragraph: She was growing bone-weary. They had lashed her tightly to a pile beneath the wharf, making sure the barnacles cut into her back. As the tide rose, she was lifted off her feet, the barnacles scraping in another direction. She gasped at the stinging of the saltwater on her wounds. As the water deepened, her bloodied back would probably attract some sharks, but she was just about beyond caring. No one had a clue where she was; no one knew she was missing. By dawn she would most likely be dead – drowned or eaten.
Prompt: Name the day that your life changed.
Word of the Day: opponency – n. opposition; resistance (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.
