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: What type of transportation do you prefer?
Sentence: A clap of thunder woke her, only the sky was cloudless.
Paragraph: Disaster waited around the corner for us. No, really. That was his name – Disaster McElvoy. It made you want to be around him, just out of curiosity. He kept promising to tell us, Alfie and me, why his mother named him Disaster, but he never did. We had our ideas, though, and when he wasn’t with us we’d speculate all over the place. Speculate – that was a word he used a lot.
Prompt: Name something in/of which you overindulge.
Word of the Day: ex cathedra – adv or adj : by virtue of or in the exercise of one’s office or position (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
