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 makes your mother tick?
Sentence: Any sound of hammering immediately transported Jack back in time to when his uncle nailed him in the closet.
Paragraph: I dumped Leon because he wouldn’t communicate and because he refused to live up to his pathetic potential. He wouldn’t even try, which really rankled me. He’d rather be a worthless, bleary eyed alcoholic and coke addict than be with me. Then, when his family wouln’t help me with an intervention – God forbid that one of their own had a problem! – that was it. Screw ’em! I shut down my heart and got out of miserabledom.
Prompt: Name your favorite way to travel.
Word of the Day: forfend – vt 1 a archaic : FORBID b : to ward off : PREVENT 2 : PROTECT : PRESERVE (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
