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: At what age did your appearance begin mattering to you?
Sentence: It took a long time before I understood that Grandpa Henry was the most mendacious man in our family.
Paragraph: After four lengthy consultations, Mimi Barston-Rosen finally decided on copper for the main kitchen of the 25K square foot monstrosity she and her multi-billionaire husband were having built on the shore of Cranberry Lake. I made her sign the agreement, which stipulated that if she changed her mind after everything had been ordered, it would cost 125% more. Mimi had not blinked. Why should she? No, make that – how could she with all that crap on her eyelashes? At the thought of the pampered, brainless woman’s raising and lowering of eyelids as being her only form of exercise, I smiled and nearly tripped going down the wide marble stairs to my midnight blue Jaguar XJL.
Prompt: Name your dream car.
Word of the Day: improvident – adj. not provident; neglecting to provide for future needs. (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.
