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: Are you celebrating today’s date or just being off work?
Sentence: He scuffled down the road with his mother’s words burning his heart: “I wish you were adopted, so we could give you back!”
Paragraph: More often than not, lately, Danielle pondered on the final phase of her too long life. While she washed dishes or dusted, did laundry or swept, she thought about having fewer things to clean. She was looking forward to it, a time of less. Less of everything – worry, chores, and responsibility. Each day brought her closer to that longed for final phase: Life without her husband.
Prompt: Name your most memorable Fourth of July.
Word of the Day: abjure – vt. 1 to give up (rights, allegiance, etc.) on oath; renounce 2 to give up (opinons) publicly; recant (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.
