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 makes you want to spend time with someone you just met?
Sentence: As soon as Jerry successfully vaulted over the electric fence, he turned around and looked at his pole on the other side.
Paragraph: Lying on the bathroom floor, Georgia did not know what to do. She could not make it to the telephone to call for help. Daniel and the kids would not be back from the county fair for hours. If it had not been for the morning sickness, she would have gone with them. She should have gone with them anyway. Then, at least, she would have been surrounded by people and rescued if, or when, she passed out; she would not have hit her chin on the sink or cracked her skull on the marble floor as she fell.
Prompt: Write an ode to coffee.
Word of the Day: punctilious – adj. 1 very careful about every detail of behavior, ceremony, etc. 2 very exact; scrupulous (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.
