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: Does weather affect your mood?
Sentence: “What a humorless household,” Ann remarked as we left the Harrises.
Paragraph: Without consulting us, Mum and Da decided to move the summer it rained thirty-seven days. Not thirty-seven days continuously, just thirty-seven days altogether, which cancelled many of their plans. They were outdoor people, you see, and this wetness did not suit them in the slightest. While they tolerated the storms during school terms, they foolishly expected summers to be sunny and balmy – just for them, or so it seemed by their extraordinary decision. We left Queen and country behind and relocated to bloody Lake Havasu City, Arizona, new home of the London Bridge. Our parents were crackers!
Prompt: List five places you would hate to live.
Word of the Day: quondam – adj. former; onetime: his quondam partner. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
