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: How long did you stare at your very first paycheck before whooping up and down?
Sentence: The rain water sluicing down the gutter floated the slightly curled fingers of a small hand lying in its path.
Paragraph: A feeling of dread creeped up her spine as she slowly climbed the stairs. The sounds coming from the third floor should not be there. When she reached the landing, the old wood creaked. As she paused, silence assailed her ears. Then came a bumping and scraping from behind the transomed door. Loudly stomping her feet to scare away any unearthly intruders, she noticed a faint, wobbling glow when she looked up at the dirty glass rectangle.
Prompt: Expand on your phobia(s).
Word of the Day: incondite – adj : badly put together : CRUDE (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.
