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 type of interruption do you not mind?
Sentence: Silly as it may seem, Ellie gauged the progress of a manuscript by the level of M&Ms in the large glass jar on her desk.
Paragraph: Inside the house it was quiet, but outside the wind told a different tale. Debris and litter flew across the street. A cat caused a car to slam on its brakes. The trees were bending every which way, their branches shaking the leaves with abusive force. And yet, she could not hear any of those sounds, only a shrill ringing in her ears. How odd, she thought. It was like she had become deaf.
Prompt: Name a celebrity you would like to meet.
Word of the Day: concupiscence – n : strong desire; esp : sexual desire (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
