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: Besides writing, do you have other creative abilities?
Sentence: Charlie Redtree interested me from the moment I saw him.
Paragraph: Momma and me have this ‘tuition. She tole me we got it from her daddy’s side of the family, all the way back ta Ireland. I never thought nothin’ ’bout it ’til Billy Murdock knocked me down after I sed he’s gonna die. He sat on me an’ put dirt in my mouth an’ tole me ta shet up, so I did. When I got home, Momma sat me down, without me tellin’ her what happened, an’ splained things ta me. Ever since, even tho’ I wern’t real sure what she was talkin’ ’bout, I kept my ‘tuition ta myself.
Prompt: Describe how you reward yourself for completing a writing assignment.
