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: How fairly do you feel you have been treated in life so far?
Sentence: Atop a ramshackle raft lay a badly sunburned, salt encrusted body, not quite dead – yet.
Paragraph: Raymond raised the hammer and slammed it down on his already throbbing thumb. He simultaneously howled, dropped the hammer, and fell backwards off the ladder, landing on a rather hard tree root and knocking the wind out of himself. He would have cussed, but he could not breath. Inwardly, he was cursing up a storm until a few words burst forth, just as ancient Mrs. Idleman bent over him.
Prompt: Describe your first visit to a museum.
Word of the Day: flaneur – n : an idle man-about-town (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.
