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: From whom does your best quality come?
Sentence: Instinctually, he gathered his children into his inadequate arms as the tornado roared towards them.
Paragraph: Professor Phillips gave a riveting lecture this morning that stuck with me. I left the hall in a daze of epiphany, as anyone does when they realize something for the first time. Clarity of thought, at any age, can either lighten the heart with wonder or darken it with sadness. By the time I returned to my dorm, I could not remember acknowledging or speaking to anyone. However, when I opened my notebooks, it appeared I had taken notes in every class. How odd.
Prompt: Identify the first person who pushed you down and made you bleed.
Word of the Day: ululant – adj : having a howling sound : WAILING (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.
