Wednesday Wits #80

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: When did you stop reading picture books?

Sentence: Everytime Barry tied his shoes, notched his belt, buttoned his collar and cuffs, and knotted his tie, he was tightening the noose around his life.

Paragraph: She was so very tired. Since the Havershim bodies had been found, no one wanted to waste time sleeping. But they all had their breaking points, and Lt. Lacey Angleton had pushed well past hers. Too exhausted to drive, she laid her seat back and locked the doors, even though she was in the station parking lot.

Prompt: Name the first person who made you jealous or envious.

Word of the Day: nadir n. the lowest point, the time of deepest depression. (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
