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 have enough friends?
Sentence: The betrayal that would occur in the next thirteen hours never entered Kajinski’s mind.
Paragraph: The day began like any other for Marissa Hardiway: rising, showering, dressing, eating a quick bite of toast, feeding the fish, and locking the front door. Then she slipped on the icy steps, squealed, fell on her tailbone, and bonked the back of her skull. For a few stunned moments, she lay still, until she started to shake with chill. As she tried to get up, Marissa glanced around to see if anyone had noticed her fall and was coming to help.
Prompt: Recall the last time you hurt yourself.
Word of the Day: ubiety – n. the state of existing and having a definite location in space. (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.
