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 much of yourself do you give to others?
Sentence: They woke lazily, their hands brailling each other’s landscape.
Paragraph: Guilt kept eating at her soul, her every attempt at redemption thwarted. Since the accident, she had tried to make anonymous restitution to help the victim’s family, even though it had not been her fault. In thick fog, the wheelchair had come out of nowhere, and she had instinctively pushed it out of the way. Unfortunately, they had been at the top of Roald’s Hill, and in the few seconds it took to realize what she had done, the wheelchair was speeding beyond rescue down its steepness. She could only follow and dial 9-1-1, telling the dispatcher that she had found the broken girl during her jog. Her brain screaming, Oh God! Oh God! Oh God!
Prompt: Write a poem about watching the world go by.
Word of the Day: capacitate – vt. [Rare] to prepare, fit, or qualify (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.
