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: Do you think creative people are more prone to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and/or depression?
Sentence: As radical as it may seem, I chopped off my hair to spite my face.
Paragraph: Jordan raced for the finish line. For a tenth of a second he eased up and Freisson gained on him. With a spike of energy that remained, Jordan barely touched the line first and continued at a slower pace for a few yards to cool down. When Freisson panted alongside and reached over to pat his shoulder, the older track star broke away without a word.
Prompt: Name a substance you misuse.
Word of the Day: poltroon – n syn COWARD, chicken craven, dastard, funk, funker, quitter, yellowbelly (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
