Tuesday Tips #100

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 instantly ticks you off?

Sentence: When the door slammed open, O’Neil fell off the couch.

Paragraph: Cory, my first born, fidgeted beside me on the pew. His brother, Travis, was walking down the aisle with my sister’s ring and causing chuckles every time he hiked up his too big pants. I buried my laughter behind a handkerchief, until Cory asked me what was wrong. I whispered that I was all right and asked if he wanted to draw.

Prompt: List five firsts in your life.

Word of the Day: cognoscible adj : COGNIZABLE, KNOWABLE (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.
