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 prefer to give or receive advice about love?
Sentence: I wasn’t exactly prepared when disaster struck.
Paragraph: The sun was too bright, the meadow too green, my heart too full. It could not last, I told myself and began to expect bad things. My smile did not dwell within anymore. I saw only doom, where there was none, but I could not help myself. The downward spiral was not healthy, but I could not release myself from its grasp. I became so moribund that Alex began to shun me, unable to abide the gloom.
Prompt: Relate how you deal with unwelcome advances.
Word of the Day: arrogate – vt 1 a : to claim or seize without justification b : to make undue claims to having : ASSUME 2 : to claim on behalf of another : ASCRIBE (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
