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 do you deal with big questions or decisions?
Sentence: No matter what, they had each other.
Paragraph: The live oak tree sprawled and shaded most of the backyard. It was as old as the state of Texas, but disease had turned it into a hazard. The falling of its heavy branches occurred more frequesntly, whether it was windy or calm, daylight or dark. Despite his fondness for the tree, Lonnie Arnold could no longer chance a destructive limb crashing through the roof or into a neighboring yard, let alone the whole tree toppling over. He absently rubbed his butt at the memory of the spanking he had received after sneaking out of the house one stormy night to perch in its midst and watch the lightning get closer.
Prompt: Recall the last prank you played.
Word of the Day: imparadise – v.t. to enrapture. (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.
