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 do you cope with rejection?
Sentence: After coughing himself awake in the middle of the night, Vance gave up and took a drive.
Paragraph: The McConnell lighthouse beam ran on stored up solar power. Standing three hundred feet above the sea, in its heyday it saved many a ship from crashing and lives from being lost. Now, however, it remained maintained only as a historical marker by Kate Rafferty, whose family had been its keeper for many generations. She loved the sunny and stormy views and relished the whipping wind from the widow’s walk, but she despised the fog.
Prompt: Relate the easiest decision you ever made.
Word of the Day: farrago – n. a confused mixture; hodgepodge; medley. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
