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: Where would you prefer to spend your leisure time?
Sentence: Taking down the wash, she buried her face in the crisp, sundried sheet.
Paragraph: Bobby, Billy, Jinx, Charlie, and Hugo sat within their hexagonal tree-fort, figuring out what to do besides munching on junk food. Built for them one beery weekend by their dads and uncles, the roofed structure securely nested eighteen feet above the ground, before the branches of the massive Red Oak began. Hugo’s dad had been the most inventive by adding a hinged ladder that could be raised like a drawbridge and tied at the doorway. The other two dads had wanted to concoct a rock wall or intricate rope ladder, which might have been scaled too easily by animals, bullies, or monsters.
Prompt: Elucidate on your favorite outfit. (why you like it, how it fits, the way it makes you feel, etc.)
Word of the Day: balladmonger – n synPOETASTER, bardlet, bardling, poeticule, rhymer, rhymester, verseman, versemonger, versesmith, versifier (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
