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: Do you have to be mischievous to have fun?
Sentence: Catastrophe struck just after midnight.
Paragraph: Henri Beauchard was a remarkable man. Standing six-feet five-inches with a perfectly smooth bald head, he came to Bellingham for the logging and stayed for love. His French-Canadian accent seemed out of place in northern Washington, but his respectful ways instantly beguiled the women in the rough 1904 town. Woolsey, Lindsey Lumbermill’s foreman, hired the muscled man on the spot and never regretted it.
Prompt: The next time you have a couple hours to spare, keep your eyes closed (or blindfolded) and try to get around the house and out in the yard without sight. Write about the experience.
Word of the Day: tendentious – adj. characterized by deliberate tendency or aim; esp., advancing a definite point of view (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.
