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: Who/what do you approach with great trepidation?
Sentence: Not fully awake, she closed the pocket door to the bathroom on her fingers.
Paragraph: I sped through the only four-way blinking red light in town. It did not matter: it was after midnight and I was the sheriff, the only law in fifty miles for two hundred people. Only strangers moving through gave me any trouble, though. That is where I was headed, to the Acorn Inn, the only motel in this good-for-nothing county. Town should have been called Only, but it wasn’t.
Prompt: Name a gift that you wish someone would intuit to give to you.
Word of the Day: infelicitous – adj : not felicitous: as a : not appropriate or well-timed <an ~ remark> b : AWKWARD, UNFORTUNATE <an ~ moment> (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.
