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 do you find most amusing about life?
Sentence: As Elsbeth’s eyesight waned with each passing year, she knew she would miss sunrises and sunsets the most.
Paragraph: As the sole heir, Sutton needed his unailing uncle to die – now. Only that quick influx of money could get him out of debt and give him a clean slate to start anew. He had made several lists of what he would do first, second, third, fourth, and fifth. The only obstacle of Uncle David’s good health, even at 87, was a frigging pisser. Luckily, Sutton had kept on the old man’s good side, never acting needy, and could easily talk him into going on a cruise, where a dreadful accident might happen. Thus inspired, he started a search for places prone to foggy conditions.
Prompt: Relate a most unpleasant evening out.
Word of the Day: morpheme – n. the smallest meaningful unit or form in a language; it may be an affix (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.
