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 any solecistic friends or acquaintances?
Sentence: We saw the rain coming and raced out to meet it.
Paragraph: He stopped at the curb, since the parking lot was packed. Perfect. He tried to calm his racing pulse, but with each step he took closer to the costume store, the more excited he became. As the automatic doors swooshed open, he pocketed his trembling hands. The immediate cacophony of children was music to his ears and weakened his knees. He clenched his jaws to get a grip on himself, not wanting to spoil this glorious opportunity to relish the sights.
Prompt: Describe the last time you did something out of character.
Word of the Day: sciolism – n. superficial knowledge. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
