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: Are you good at contemplation?
Sentence: Looking towards the setting sun, she imagined him returning home to her.
Paragraph: Project Revelation was Brigadier General Anthony Patton Ternbo’s baby, even though it originated with Bradley, his fifteen-year-old grandson. The boy, such a fine boy, the general proudly thought as he presented the secret plan in the Pentagon’s war room. At first, they had laughed at him, then, when they realized he was serious, they tried to debunk the idea as something Congress or the President would never go for. So he appealed to their military loyalty and manhood rather than to their patriotism, calling the pursestringers in D.C. spineless pussies and making his point with: “Gentlemen, we don’t need their approval for this nonviolent strategy.”
Prompt: Pick an ancestor and write a synopsis of his/her life that has been related to you or that you have discovered.
Word of the Day: cackhanded – adj. 1 [Brit. Colloq.] left-handed 2 clumsy; awkward (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
