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 write to live or live to write?
Sentence: It twernt nobody’s fault what happened to me.
Paragraph: Everything was such a blur – literally. I’d forgotten my glasses, not necessarily on purpose, but I forgot to put them back on after trying to make my eyelashes more noticeable. When I heard the school bus coming, I rushed downstairs and gathered all my daily junk. Being the first one on, I took my usual seat behind Mrs. Elway, who kept silent with her eyes straight ahead. Sometimes I wondered if she was driving in her sleep.
Prompt: Pretend you are the opposite of who you are and write down the reactions of others towards you.
Word of the Day: expurgate – v. censor, remove, expunge, cut, bowdlerize, clean up, sanitize, purge, soften. (ROGET’S SUPERTHESAURUS, Marc McCutcheon, 1995)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
