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 never fails to lift your spirits?
Sentence: Everyone is so quick to judge me guilty.
Paragraph: Her clinginess suffocated me; I couldn’t breathe around her. The tendrils of her neediness were strangling my soul, like kudzu that smothered its victims. So I began staying out later, hoping she would be asleep by the time I got home. But it never worked. She seemed to have an inner sense where I was concerned and either waited up for me or woke up as soon as I opened the door. How could she not notice me cringing away from her touch? How could she be blinded to the wretchedness etched on my face?
Prompt: Describe your secret hideaway.
Word of the Day: hymeneal – adj. of or pertaining to marriage. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
