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 would you rate yourself on the social scale?
Sentence: I watched in terror as the grizzly chomped off Pa’s arm before I could pull the trigger.
Paragraph: Something dangerous was brewing. Her bones ached and her forehead hurt with the change in barometric pressure. The wind was whipping up into a frenzy, and the animals were mooing and snorting. The old screen door flapped and banged so much she had to hook it shut. She lifted her chin and smelled rain, which they did not need. A chill went through her, as she muttered, “Better go batten down the hatches.”
Prompt: Pinpoint the moment you became responsible.
Word of the Day: crankous – adj. cranky; ill-tempered; irritable (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.
