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: When the electricity goes out, how quickly do you reset your digital clocks?
Sentence: We heard a wailing ambulance coming into our neighborhood, but instead of going down the street to the old Conkrites, it stopped right next door to us.
Paragraph: Too bad I was alone. My pole was in the water, my hat was set over my eyes, and my body was stretched out nice an’ easy like with my shoulders against a big ol’ log. I knew it would make a perfect picture for some magazine, but I’d come by myself to the creek. Tory and Sam had to go to some dumb funeral. What a sorry way to spend a summer day!
Prompt: List three things you do every weekend.
Word of the Day: bosk – n. a small wooded place; grove; thicket (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.
