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 avoid people with certain first names?
Sentence: At twilight the ferocious wind abated and released everything it had mangled, strained, and torn away.
Paragraph: Until Onus Blackmon came along, I was stuck in the house, watchin’ life go by through filmy windows. Although Daddy bought us a used double-wide to accommodate (that was the social worker’s word) my wheelchair, he hadn’t gotten ’round to buildin’ me a ramp so I could go outside. Mrs. Marley, who was always settin’ on her little porch and knowin’ everybody’s business, probably told Onus ’bout me, ’cause he came knockin’ one day when Daddy was home. After introducin’ himself, he asked Daddy if he could build me a ramp, and Daddy said to knock himself out.
Prompt: Name your least favorite candy.
Word of the Day: lickerish or liquorish – adj. Archaic. 1. fond of and eager for choice food. 2. greedy; longing. 3. lustful; lecherous. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
