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.”

Sentence: Unfortunately, having a cesarean section did not block Anita’s ears from hearing the startled gasps of the medical team on the other side of the drape.

Word of the Day: carrefour – n. 1. a crossroads. 2. a public square; marketplace. (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.
