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 would you do with a magic wand?
Sentence: Lovely Linda lavishly licked a large lollipop, causing quite a stir on the sidewalk outside Obermeyer’s General Store.
Paragraph: The Duntsmoor Estate auction was well underway by the time Hardesty and I managed to arrive. Ridiculous as it seemed, I could not help but think that we were being thwarted intentionally from attending: the wipers quit working during the storm, a tire blew out, and a falling tree barely missed us. We could only hope that we were in time to bid on item #235, the Edgar Allan Poe sketch of a pendulum.
Prompt: Name the sickest you have ever been.
Word of the Day: hispid – adj. covered with rough bristles, stiff hairs, or small spines (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.
