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 is your mantra?
Sentence: After stuffing herself with cookies, she opened the freezer.
Paragraph: Thick, dark smoke continued to rise into the pure blue sky. The sun glistened on the watered grass and driveway. I sat on the road, all cried out and wondering what on earth could possibly happen next.
Prompt: Identify a difficult decision you would not want to make.
Word of the Day: rive – v.t. 1. to tear or rend apart. 2. to split by striking; cleave. 3. to harrow or distress (the feelings, heart. etc.). 4. to split (wood) radially from a log. – v.i. 5. to become rent or split apart. (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.
