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 wear a watch?
Sentence: Ismeralda turned and fixed her griseous eyes upon him.
Paragraph: At the first rumble and belch all eyes turned towards the not-so-distant mountain. Its decades of quietness belied the growing danger deep inside and lulled the wistful residents of Colberton almost into complacency, especially the new ones. For the past twenty years, Colberton had been billed as one of the best places to raise a family in order to boost a waning economy. And it had worked, the town doubled in size with no crime or unemployment. Tourists who came for the fishing and natural hot springs were warmly welcomed; volcanologists were not.
Prompt: Name the tallest mountain, hill, or stairway you have climbed.
Word of the Day: eustasy – n. any uniformly global change of sea level. (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.
