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: Have you ever burst into song?
Sentence: When I brought my grandfather’s watch to the famous clockworkers, Downe and Owters, they were most intrigued.
Paragraph: As soon as the Talbots left, Hawker let himself into their apartment, from which wafted tantalizing aromas. After becoming the super, it had not taken him long to realize the culinary benefits of his position. He loved to eat, but hated to cook and spend money on restaurants. He filled his refrigerator with tenant leftovers, taking only what he needed so it would not be missed. Mrs. Talbot proved to be the best in the building, and today she had made some irresistable soup. He would only take a couple cupfuls from the large pot; he always brought his own containers.
Prompt: Identify a movie that surprised you.
Word of the Day: enisle – v.t. 1. to make an island of. 2. to place on an island. 3. to isolate. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
