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 insect do you admire?
Sentence: After going over the Delightful Learning accounts, Patricia Cummings announced to her partners, Natalie Bateman and Chanda Goswani: “We might make a profit this year!”
Paragraph: As though in a trance, Sammy paddled out into the ocean, farther than his friends. He kept going until his shoulders began to ache, then he turned around and sat up. To his surprise, no land was in sight. When he could not locate the heads of his buddies bobbing anywhere, great goosebumps of fear rose on his skin.
Prompt: Identify the place you cannot stop visiting.
Word of the Day: lapidate – vt. [Rare] 1 to throw stones at 2 to stone to death (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
