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 would you characterize yourself?
Sentence: Normally, Nate would get up with the chickens, but on this dreariest of days he stayed abed, with his head throbbing and his eyes preferring to remain closed.
Paragraph: Whenever anything in the neighborhood went missing, it could usually be found in Chloe’s castle treehouse. How she got some things up there was a wonder, which made people speculate about her ingenuity if not less-than-stellar character. The ten-year-old puzzled her concerned parents as well, causing them to often ponder if perhaps she had been switched at birth, although they were too embarrassed to ask. Of whom would they inquire anyway?
Prompt: Describe something for which you were unprepared.
Word of the Day: tristful – adj : SAD, MELANCHOLY (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.
