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: What do you do only because it is good for you?
Sentence: Like all gun enthusiasts, he groaned when he heard the latest news of another school massacre.
Paragraph: Her eyes kept swimming in tears at each mention of the dead children. More dead children. Precious babies who would never see another birthday or holiday. Children who would never laugh or smile at their parents again. Children who would never fall down and need comforting anymore. Lives senselessly shortened, leaving behind forever traumatized classmates and friends, sisters and brothers. Then she thought of the young man who had committed the heinous act: he had been a child once and had not received the help he needed. So many problems, so much hell to live through around the world. She felt sickened to the core.
Prompt: Name your favorite vegetable.
Word of the Day: plicate – adj. folded like a fan; pleated.
