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 read to you when you were little?
Sentence: He could hear but could not speak.
Paragraph: He did not see anyone behind him when he turned around to look, but ever since he left the butcher shop he sensed someone following him. The sun had been out when his mother had sent him to fetch a ham bone for soup. Then it had turned grayish with patches of mist. The closer he came to home, the stronger the sense that he was in danger. He stopped, turned fully around, and listened to the woods. No birds. No wind. No crickets. Just silence.
Prompt: Declare what you would give up for love.
Word of the Day: lenity – n. mercifulness, an act of mercy (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
