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 long do you stay abed on your day(s) off?
Sentence: Boy sounds of toy guns firing at imaginary aliens and spies filled the house as they rounded each corner into one dangerous situation after another.
Paragraph: The cloistered nuns felt safe within the quarried walls of St. Mary’s Blessed Hands convent. Standing atop a verdant valley, facing God’s glorious dawns, the quarried structure had taken six years to construct at the behest of the king’s mother and provided more than adequate shelter from the elements. thieves, and invaders. However, what put their devout lives in danger came in the form of a wee babe.
Prompt: Recall your first act of independence.
Word of the Day: abnegate – v.t. 1. to refuse or deny (rights, comforts, etc.) to oneself; renounce. 2. to relinquish; give up. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
