Tuesday Tips #97

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 wish there was magic?

Sentence: Amazingly, the excruciating pain of birthing was instantly replaced by pure euphoria.

Paragraph: Watching his wife move her plants from one window to another, following the sun, gave Vern Grumbaugh an idea. An idea that would probably never achieve fruition, but it kept his mind busy for a while. Online he found what he wanted: information on and photos of rotating houses. After a week of drafting and putting together the financial aspect of his plan, he showed Enid what had been keeping him busy and out of her hair. She laughed so hard at his absurdity that she began snorting and keeled over.

Prompt: Name another place you would rather be today.

Word of the Day: anomalous adj. 1 deviating from the regular arrangement, general rule, or usual method; abnormal  being or seeming to be inconsistent, contradictory, or improper  (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.
