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.
