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: When all else fails, what do you come back to/resort to?
Sentence: Crossing the Atlantic was not Phillip Markham’s idea of a good time.
Paragraph: As her name was called, Megan Stanley steeled herself for the cross examination to come. Holding herself stiffly and biting the inside of her cheek for concentration, she made her way to the witness stand and carefully sat down. Her trembling legs, which only the judge could see, belied the calmness with which she spoke of the events leading up to her lover’s death.
Prompt: Identify something you plan to do as soon as spring arrrives.
Word of the Day: holus-bolus – adv. all at once; in one lump (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.
