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: Are you good at giving comfort?
Sentence: My best friend, Eureka Uehlinger, had twelve fingers.
Paragraph: I know I would be just fine if I could just calm down. My heart is racing, which isn’t good. I’m feeling lightheaded and need to sit down. But we are not allowed to sit. We must remain standing, knees locked, as punishment for Maureen’s moronic hoax. We cannot raise our arms to steady ourselves; our legs must must touch from thighs to soles. I think I’m going to be sick, but that will just make things worse for everybody. I must calm down. I must…breath…slower…
Prompt: Name your worst visit to a doctor.
Word of the Day: labile – adj. liable to change; unstable (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.
