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 do haiku?
Sentence: Dr. Rory Blanchard, Professor of Lichenology, spent more time in the woods than in the classroom.
Paragraph: Pencils rasped against paper on every desk but one. Mr. Faulk focused his gaze towards the back of the classroom, not with ire but with pity. Julie Owens’ messy head rested on her desktop, a chewed pencil loosely propped within her unwashed hand. The poor child had fallen asleep, again, as soon as the room quieted with testing. Faulk scanned the rest of his students for signs of cheating, waiting to receive all their written answers before carrying the girl’s small body to the nurse’s station.
Prompt: Name your favorite morning spot.
Word of the Day: brume – n : MIST, FOG (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.
