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: How many library books have you checked out at any one time?
Sentence: At the first unusual sound, she was ready, prepared to strike as she had been thoroughly trained to do.
Paragraph: Two of the most oneriest, good fer nothin scroundrels in three counties got theirselves kilt the other day, drivin too dang fast down Squirrel Mountain road til they went soarin off, straight down into Salty Dog Canyon. Man, I wisht I coulda seen that! Bet it was excitin as all get out. Lots a yellin and flailin and wettin theirselves all the way down. I never get to see nothin fun! Even their coffins was nailt shut, cause they was so smashed to pulps. Homer down to the feed store heard tell their bones were stickin out all over the place. Woo-ee!
Prompt: Expand on a story/anecdote your grandmother/grandfather keeps/kept repeating.
Word of the Day: disquisition – n. a long elaborate spoken or written account of something. (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
