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 can anyone kill children?
Sentence: The shock of being shot at and seeing classmates bleed and die caused more than one child to contract hysterical blindness or muteness.
Paragraph: Unlike most males, Trent loved to shop. At first he thought the shopping bug came from his mother, who had taken him everywhere with her. Then he realized it was just a part of him, for his brothers hated poring over clothes, groceries, jewelry, linens, art supplies, and kitchen items. They dissed him constantly until he began going out with older girls, who could not get enough of him.
Prompt: List five words with definitions that take up at least one-fourth of a page (one-half of a column).
Word of the Day: hobbledehoy – n : an awkward gawky youth (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.
