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: When was your last good kiss?
Sentence: You cannot reason with two-year-olds; they are too busy becoming independent and thinking for themselves.
Paragraph: When I was ten, Momma allowed Dad to take me hunting. He had given up on having a son, I guess, and picked me to traipse quietly through the woods with. The thrill of being chosen and feeling special died along with the deer, though. Its long, pink tongue dangling from the side of its mouth revolted me, as Dad patted me on the back and beamed. “You’re a natural, Cal!” he said, but I did not feel proud.
Prompt: Write a haiku about snow.
Word of the Day: jussive – adj. Gram. expressing a command – n. a jussive word, form, case, or mood (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.
