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: What taste does your mouth savor the most?
Sentence: The spectators gasped in horror as El Toro Diablo tossed matador Antonio Manuel Vasquez into the air and impaled him with lethal horns.
Paragraph: Robbie and I were sitting on the front porch swing, holding hands. His heavy boots were planted on the cement floor, like unmovable tree trunks, keeping me from pushing off for a gentle swaying. He’d been courting me for several months and I was growing weary of his respectfulness. I turned my head to tell him so, when he began to weep.
Prompt: Name your favorite outfit.
Word of the Day: gaberlunzie – n. a wandering or licensed beggar. (MRS. BYRNE’S DICTIONARY of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words BY JOSEFA HEIFETZ BYRNE. Secaucus, NJ: Citadel Press and University Books, 1974.)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
