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 dictionaries do you have?
Sentence: The witch of Wentworth Glen would have been content to leave well enough alone had it not been for the Beagle brothers.
Paragraph: Through the dense air came several muffled foghorns. Although it served no purpose on such a night, Cratchett lit the lighthouse lamp out of habit. Then he stood on the catwalk, trying to peer through the fog. Impossible. While he could barely see his hands gripping the railing, his calves and feet were invisible. Slightly disoriented, he made his way inside, where he felt human again.
Prompt: Name the first cartoon you saw.

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
