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: Now that you know the truth about life, what is your opinion?
Sentence: Fortunately for him, his wife was a sound sleeper.
Paragraph: Rather than purchasing poisonous plants through a nursery or online, Dorthea preferred to hunt for them in the wild. By taking weekend road trips to delightful, secluded little hideaways, she could kill two birds with one stone, so to speak: finding pretty, but deadly, adornments for her award-winning backyard and rewarding herself with soothing solitude. Dorthea carefully placed her treasures behind all the harmless beauties in her garden plots, not wanting, of course, any unfortunate accidents.
Prompt: Write an essay on or ode to your favorite pet.
Word of the Day: sesquipedalian – adj 1 : having many syllables : LONG 2 : given to or characterized by the use of long words (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.
