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 can you go without cussing?
Sentence: He wanted a woman with hair he could run his fingers through.
Paragraph: Long after most small town movie theaters had been closed, abandoned, or converted into live theatre events, Granite City’s Rialto remained open. Owners Clare and Buck Dafling refused to give in to the times of multiplexes, feeling they were not alone in sticking with the past by offering a new movie every two weeks, two dollar tickets, and twenty-five cent popcorn. Anyone wanting to see the latest R-rated movies went elsewhere. However, with each passing year they were less able financially, as well as physically, to keep the place in decent condition. The lighting was dim at best, which some patrons thought might be intentional given the musty smell and lumpy velvet seats.
Prompt: Name three healthy things you do.
Word of the Day: hibernal – adj. of or pertaining to winter; wintry. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
