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 do you go about making friends?
Sentence: It had been a rough night.
Paragraph: Looking out at the moon rising over the pond, Saundra stood in the doorway with her back to me. I grabbed my sketch pad and drew her perfect form, partially covered by her long, tousled hair. She gave me just enough time to complete the beginnings of a painting before stepping down off the porch. The moonscape I could fill in later. I followed her outside and joined her in the refreshing water.
Prompt: Elucidate on the last time you were flummoxed.
Word of the Day: agnate – n. 1. a relative whose connection is traceable exclusively though males. 2. any male relation on the father’s side – adj. 3. related or akin through males or on the father’s side. 4. allied or akin (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.
