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: When do you feel you are out of your element?
Sentence: Ever since I can remember, I have been afraid of Papa Rue.
Paragraph: As Dr. Fredericks examined me, exploring my breasts, nodes, neck, and abdomen, her face grew grim. Fear immediately began to kick in – and anger. I always thought doctors were supposed to be impassionate, have poker faces, present the facts, and describe options. Are they supposed to show puzzlement and uncertainty? I didn’t think so. This was all my sister’s fault – she recommended Fredericks to me.
Prompt: Name your favorite sense.
Word of the Day: videlicet – adv : that is to say : NAMELY (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.
