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 often do you pleasure yourself?
Sentence: On a quiet street in a quiet town, a quiet crime was taking place.
Paragraph: Resentment, bordering on hatred, reared its ugly head as soon as Samantha crossed her sister’s threshhold and was assaulted by myriad gushing compliments over her appearance. The family treated her this way everytime she dressed up, like it was some frigging miracle transformation of an alley waif into a stunning princess. It infuriated her no end that they pitied her, thinking she could not afford fashionable clothes or salon treatments. Judging everyone by possessions and vanity, they thought they knew all about her, but in reality they knew squat.
Prompt: Write an ode to Fridays.
Word of the Day: scrouge – v.t., v.i. to squeeze; crowd. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
