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: Is your family prone to spats?
Sentence: He hated that the medication made him shaky.
Paragraph: Politicians drove Mattie crazy. They repeated rhetoric, regardless of venue or question, or out-and-out lied to voters who wanted to believe in them. They were full of hypocrisy, ego, and manipulation. It amazed her that people continued to vote for candidates based on what they said rather than who they were in character and actions. This country is in sad shape, she thought, looking out over the crowd of ralliers. Not a doubt or question showed on their faces.
Prompt: Name someone with whom you wish you had kept in touch.
Word of the Day: necrolatry – n. worship of, or excessive reverence for, the dead (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.
