Wednesday Wits #96

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: Do you like to meddle?

Sentence: The stench of burning animals sailed on the wind as fire raged across the green glen.

Paragraph: The Master Elf gently closed the magnificently carved door, not wanting to exacerbate the already overloaded, stressed-out mind behind it. With just days to go before the annual trip, they were behind schedule, but that was normal. His twenty-five hundred elves always came through to produce the extra toys needed for the newest members of the planet’s population. However, global warming had reached the North Pole, keeping the ice from forming less than forty miles away in every direction and causing discovery to loom closer. Plus the polar bears were thumping at the sturdy log fortress, threatening the reindeer. The Master Elf had not seen the likes of such warmness in all his two hundred years, but having to tell Santa his sleigh’s runners needed reinforcement or he would be unable to land on all the extra snowless roofs had been an unwelcome necessity.

Prompt: Make a list of places you dare not go.

Word of the Day: desiderate vt : to entertain or express a wish to have or attain (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.
