Tuesday Tips #61

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:  Do you have a reason to be vain?

Sentence: The closer I get to dying the less I care about trying.

Paragraph: Clancy clanked down the metal stairs in the rain and slipped, falling to the bottom before he could catch himself. Shit! He glanced up at the few windows of the alley, but no one seemed to be looking out into the dimness. After testing his body for injury as he rose, he sprinted off to catch up on the time he had lost. Sullivan’s gonna have a hissy!

Prompt: Name the girl/guy of your dreams.

Word of the Day: taxonomy n. 1 : the study of the general principles of scientific classification : SYSTEMATICS  2 : CLASSIFICATION; esp : orderly classification of plants and animals according to their presumed natural relationships (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.

I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border.
