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: If you could choose your siblings, who would they be?
Sentence: Margie Munrose was a pistol, just like her grandpap.
Paragraph: Once Dad was gone, Mom took to using the crockpot almost everyday. She said it made her feel useful, and the smells permeating the house comforted her. Even though she rarely ate what she fixed, it did not go to waste. Most of the meals went to neighbors, the ones where both parents worked. “Those kids need to know what home cookin’ is,” she would explain with a tsk.
Prompt: Name your favorite neighborhood, past or present.
Word of the Day: yawp – v.i. 1. to utter a loud, harsh cry; yelp; squawk. 2. to talk noisily and complainingly. – n. 3. a harsh cry. 4.a. raucous or querulous talk. b. a noisy, foolish utterance. (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.
