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: Have you ever won a staring contest?
Sentence: “Daniel, you are not my brother!” an indignant Joan proclaimed.
Paragraph: I did my utmost to bring her round, not wanting her to give up so soon. But I had chosen wrong, a totally odd occurrence, given my success. She had presented herself as strong and defiant with a quick wit and a scathing stare; however, everything about her was a lie. These modern women, out to prove themselves equal to or even better than men – such folly! Dear, oh dear, Kathleen, why couldn’t you have been more challenging? I had expected great enjoyment from you.
Prompt: List five amazing things you have seen or experienced.
Word of the Day: weir – n. 1. a small dam in a river or stream. 2. a fence, as of brush, or a net set in a stream, channel, etc. for catching fish. (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.
