Tuesday Tips #93

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: To where would you like to escape?

Sentence: Farley found EVIL TRUTH to be a challenge: every thirteenth letter, word, sentence, paragraph, page, and chapter were either missing, skipped, or blank.

Paragraph: Although Wolfe had been stalking game in Wild Man’s Forest for decades, he had never come across a clearing or a cabin before. Yet, there one stood not fifty yards away, looking deserted and dilapidated. After taking in all its features, he warily began to approach the structure, which appeared not quite right. As soon as he stepped out of the trees and into the clearing, utter silence enveloped him.

Prompt: Name the most useless word in any language.

Word of the Day: cacology n. defective pronunciation or socially unacceptable speech. (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.

About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
