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: What birth date would you have preferred ?
Sentence: Every night Joni read herself to sleep within the mosquito netting.
Paragraph: Perched in the old apple tree, Stuart watched his family not miss him. They went about having their picnic fun, as though he did not exist. His eyes clogged with tears and his throat closed up with heartache. He could not help being the way he was. He had tried so hard to be good and obedient, but something inside him kept everyone hating him anyway. So why bother? He angrily wiped away the evidence of his weakness, of the pain they caused, and flung himself carelessly from the tree with a hardening heart.
Prompt: Describe an incident at summer camp that you cannot forget.
Word of the Day: decuple – adj. 1. ten times as great – v.t. 2. to increase tenfold. (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.
