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 have you yet to rectify?
Sentence: Their stomachs took turns growling.
Paragraph: With tears raining down her face Estelle remembered the last words her grandfather had said to her years earlier: “You never came back.” Oh, Pawpaw, I didn’t know it was a promise I couldn’t keep. She had been so young and newly married, naive to the max, still believing in happy endings and endless possibilities. I’m sorry Pawpaw, I’m so sorry, she apologized, tossing down a bag of his favorite chewing tobacco onto the coffin.
Prompt: Name a delicacy you deny yourself for health’s sake.
Word of the Day: jocose– adj. given to or characterized by joking; playful. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
