Tuesday Tips #65

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 part of nature (plants, animals, insects rocks, caves, etc.) do you enjoy the most?

Sentence: The mangled body that washed ashore with the tide was not a stranger.

Paragraph: Excitement was high at Rinks Elementary School. For a few hours learning would be put aside for the fun of Field Day, a day when even teachers dressed in shorts. Parents and grandparents came to watch, cheer, and participate, armed with sunscreen, mosquito spray and water bottles. From a second-story bedroom window, overlooking the expansive school yard, someone else also watched the festivities. Someone wondering how many he could shoot before being stopped. If he was stopped.

Prompt: Excluding writing, describe something so mesmerizing that you tune out everything else.

Word of the Day: amorphous adj  1 a : having no definite form : SHAPELESS  b : being without definite character or nature : UNCLASSIFIABLE  c : lacking organization or unity  2 : having no real or apparent crystalline form  (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.
