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: Do you have the patience and fortitude to put off indulging yourself?
Sentence: Hating wringing necks, Alec was quite proud of his chicken guillotine.
Paragraph: Sitting at the bottom of the pool, Cat watched her lazy air bubbles float up to the surface. She knew she did not belong down there – her kind does not swim – but she had always been odd. She did not wander from this unique place to which the humans had brought her; she did not kill mice, birds, roaches, or lizards that they thought she would; and she did not like being petted.
Prompt: List five sounds that annoy you the most.
Word of the Day: xenophilia – n. attraction to or admiration of strangers or foreigners or of anything foreign or strange (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.
