Tuesday Tips #53

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: Other than your writing, are you intense or fanatical about anything?

Sentence: When Tina was too young to have deep thoughts, she named her two dolls Dolly and Baby.

Paragraph: “Reynolds, get in here!” my boss called and I cringed, bringing my shoulders up to my ears, almost. I got up slowly, wondering what I had done this time. It wasn’t fun having the first desk outside his office. In the beginning, I thought it was because I was either special in a good way or in need of major observation. Eventually, I figured out that it was because I was too new to know it was punishment.

Prompt: Define your outlook on life.

Word of the Day: prolegomenonn. 1 a preliminary remark  2 a preliminary statement or essay; foreword (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.
