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: How impulsive are you?
Sentence: Surreptitiously studying the stately man across the room, Stephena wondered how her heart and her mind could be so at odds with one another.
Paragraph: Oh, my god, what the fuck is wrong with me! was the litany accompanying the banging of his forehead on the steering wheel. Becoming aware that people in the busy parking lot could see him acting crazy, he lowered the seat back and covered his face with his hands, avoiding stares as well as the small silver bag on the console beside him. Within the bag sat a small, black velvet covered box, which held an enormous engagement ring for the love of his life, the owner of his heart – Antonia. What the hell, man? he could not stop berating himself, after automatically coming on to the pretty salesclerk.
Prompt: Create a character study of someone you would like to help.
Word of the Day: fatidic or fatidical – adj : of or relating to prophecy (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
