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: Are you able to stop yourself from doing or saying something inappropriate?
Sentence: The first rule of thumb in the desert is never to make camp in an arroyo.
Paragraph: Being such an unlucky child, I often worried that my parents would send me away to save themselves time and money. I contracted polio at age eight and was in an iron lung for two months. When I was ten, I broke my wrist trying to reach homeplate in a street game. The following summer, we went to our first amusement park, where I broke my back on the tallest rollercoaster by being scared stiff and thrown around. By the time I graduated high school, my medical file was quite thick; however, this is not a tale of woe.
Prompt: Describe the bark of your favorite tree.
Word of the Day: dialogist – n 1 : a writer of dialogues 2 : one who participates in a dialogue (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
