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: Is your life based on a plan?
Sentence: At night, awash in bright holiday lights, even the most dismal neighborhoods appeared magical.
Paragraph: Stuck in mind-numbing commute traffic, Rafferty let his imagination zoom him on a steep, curving mountain road, then breaking the land-speed record in the salt flats. Though the radio blared, he heard commuters either applauding or cursing as his Audi extended its height so he could drive above all the stalled vehicles ahead. Glancing over at the two-or-more-occupants lane, he saw only slightly increased movement. Why the hell can’t we all work from home?
Prompt: Name a language you would like to learn.
Word of the Day: pourboire – n syn GRATUITY, cumshaw, lagniappe, largess (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.
