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: Who never fails to amaze you?
Sentence: “How far do you plan on going?” my father asked me, as I left the house with a bulging backpack.
Paragraph: The day was hot and humid, like home in Corpus Christi, but we were in Costa Rica, at the Manuel Antonio beach. We had just come out of the national park and were soaked with sweat, more than ready for a refreshing swim. Other tourists had joined Costa Ricans in the bay and seemed to be enjoying themselves. However, we were greatly disappointed to find the water too warm and murky. I couldn’t wait to get back to the hotel and take a cold shower, but Buzz was a mere dot bobbing on the horizon.
Prompt: Unleash your surreptitious thoughts.
Word of the Day: extant – adj. existing, living, alive, surviving, around, present, current, remaining (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.
