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: Of what are you most proud?
Sentence: Inspector Atwell’s reliance on his gut instinct caused him as much trouble as did his pigeon-toedness.
Paragraph: Nobody needed to get away from it all as much as Lindsey Wallace. She had been full-steaming nonstop towards her career goal for more than eight years. No time for friends, lovers, pets, or family; only bosses, co-workers, assistants, and underlings filled her life. The first and last to leave everyday, she had an electronic key to the prestigious Zorn & Zorn building. One winter morning, the decision, or nondecision, to take a break was taken away from her, when she was discovered unconscious in the elevator.
Prompt: Name someone you secretly admire.
Word of the Day: effulgence – n : radiant splendor : BRILLIANCE (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.
