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 long is your regret list?
Sentence: The villagers barred their doors on rare evenings when the moon appeared before the sun had set.
Paragraph: Talent will out, Delores, Auntie Joan would always say whenever she had been rejected. Though meant as heartfelt encouragement, by the time she was 34 and still undiscovered, Delores knew the woman who raised her was full of crap. Even in her seventies with a voice as melodiously lovely as ever, the older woman’s beauty ran rings around Delores beginning wrinkles. The comparisons between the two were endless and the young woman began to resent them.
Prompt: Give a testimonial to your favorite doughnut.
Word of the Day: coriaceous – adj : resembling leather (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
