Tuesday Tips #51

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: Do you enjoy games of chance?

Sentence: Willis quietly closed the bedroom door, made coffee, fixed his lunch, and slipped outside to his backyard office.

Paragraph: The sausage was burning in the old iron skillet. Suzie grabbed its hot handle and almost immediately dropped it onto her left foot, causing the molten grease to splatter up her shin and back down to her ankle and the top of her foot. Screaming, she ran outside and jumped in the cool water trough. When the pain subsided, she stripped off her wet, worn calico dress and went back inside to pick off a small chunk of ice from the icebox. You ain’t goin’ dancin’ tonight, Suzie gal!

Prompt: Identify your best culinary accomplishment.

Word of the Day: umbrageous adj. 1 giving shade; shady  2 easily offended (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.
