Tuesday Tips #76

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: How many times have you been skinny dipping?

Sentence: About to go on her first book tour, Annie Meadows was terrified and wished she had been born blind so she did not have to look at anyone.

Paragraph: His head clogged with a summer cold, Crawford went through the accounts in a slight fog. By the end of the day, he realized he would probably have to go through them all over again and should have stayed home. By the time he pulled into Clairidge Towers’ parking garage, he thought he might have to sleep in the car.

Prompt: Name your favorite way to enjoy a pool, river, lake, or ocean.

Word of the Day: trigon n. 1. a triangle.  2. an ancient Greek stringed instrument with a triangular shape. (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.

    It is a good way to stimulate those grey cells Poirot 🙂
    My best way to find muse, to create an idea, or to over come an obstacle is by stimulating the subconscious, through music for example or, like I do, through jogging. Best ideas originate from the subconscious, since our conscious is always busy with our reality.
