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: When did you have to stop being a child?
Sentence: Staying at Mum’s house always brought back unpleasant memories.
Paragraph: As I scoured Thursday’s classifieds for Friday garage sales, I made a list of possibilities. One ad caught my eye and made me smile: Sectional, bedroom set, toys, books, and one unruly boy; 17432 Fracture Lane. Although I knew better than to waste my time in that particular neighborhood, the boy I had to have a look at. And his clever mother might be worth meeting.
Prompt: Confess the name of someone whose recent birthday you forgot.
Word of the Day: verism – n. realism or naturalism in the arts (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
