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 helps you write – music, people talking, or quiet?
Sentence: After the plague destroyed most of the village, including his parents, Walther fled into the forest to survive.
Paragraph: Behind an ancient, thatched cottage stood the remains of a stone well. If there had ever been a bucket and handle for drawing water, they had been long gone. As I leaned over the side of the well, the noon sun illuminated something shiny on the dry bottom. Curious, I placed my hands on the cold, stone rim and circled the opening for a better view.
Prompt: Describe your solution to improving education.
Word of the Day: lectual – adj. bedridden (Heifetz, Josefa. MRS. BYRNE’S DICTIONARY of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words BY JOSEFA HEIFETZ BYRNE. Secaucus, NJ: Citadel Press and University Books, 1974.)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
