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 did you start questioning the “truth”?
Sentence: Saturday, silly Sally sat stock-still, silently suffering stupendous sadness.
Paragraph: Bradley religiously read his horoscope every morning, in the bathroom. His gramma Nan had gotten him hooked on them all those years ago, even though he no longer admitted to being an ardent believer. From ages eight to fifteen, when she had died, he had spent every summer with her in the desert and learned all about astronomy and astrology, which were completely entwined as far as she had been concerned.
Prompt: Explain the first time you cussed in front of your parents or grandparents.
Word of the Day: velleity – n. 1. vollition in its weakest form. 2. a mere wish, unaccompanied by an effort to obtain it. (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.
