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: Will you be glad to put 2012 behind you?
Sentence: Long after the joke had been told, Simon could not stop cachinnating.
Paragraph: Using the wide semi-circular rolling tray Uncle Carl had made to accommodate her wheelchair, Jennifer sat on the veranda and worked magic with gems and beads. After the horrendous accident that paralyzed her and nearly sliced off her face, Dr. Harper suggested the traumatized young woman take up a craft or hobby, anything – sewing, scrapbooking, learning a foreign language, etc. – to occupy her time and get her back into living. However, a couple months went by before Jennifer happened to reopen a childhood box of beadwork and discovered she had a knack for making jewelry. The unique designs she created became Jenni’s Jems, a thriving online store that replaced self-pity with pride.
Prompt: Name something you have never done before and briefly explain why.
Word of the Day: nitid – adj. bright; lustrous. (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.
