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: What would make you move elsewhere?
Sentence: Every time Thomas handed her his checkbook she cringed.
Paragraph: Allan rubbed the cracked toilet seat with a towel to friction up some warmth. His breath blew out as he quickly sat down, holding the waist of his grimy pants as close as possible. He zoned out, remembering how one day the portable poopers were bombed. Before he went to war that would have brought What a way to go! to mind, but not now. Not after having been showered with body parts as well as shit.
Prompt: Explain how you are making your community (or the world) a better place.
Word of the Day: hurtle – vi. 1 orig., to dash (against or together) with great force or crushing impact; collide 2 to move swiftly and with great force – vt. to throw, shoot, or fling with great force; hurl – n. [Old Poet.] the act of hurtling; collision; clash (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.
