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 well do you want anyone to know you?
Sentence: It never occurred to Chet DuBois that Clarice would have him followed.
Paragraph: It was nearly dawn, when the bus stopped. None of the other passengers stirred as Cassie Jenkins stepped down and waited for the driver to retrieve her new suitcase from the cargo hold. However, the smelly man did not bother being quiet clomping down the metal steps or clanging the bin door against the side of the bus or yanking the bag backwards onto the dirt. Without looking at her he mumbled, “Luck,” and drove away. Closing her dark eyes, Cassie held her breath and turned her face from the fumes. When she blew out her breath and opened her eyes simultaneously, the sky had lightened slightly, but a fog was rolling in. However, without hesitation, she picked up the suitcase and started walking into the nothingness. Although it had been a while, she knew the way blindfolded.
Prompt: Describe the last time you were duped.
Word of the Day: bildungsroman – n : a novel about the moral and psychological growth of the main character (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
