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: Do you usually achieve your monthly writing goals?
Sentence: Lorraine dated many men but bedded them only once.
Paragraph: Full of fidgetiness, Darby bounced like a kangaroo from job to job, until word got around that he was unreliable. He stayed at each position – delivery man, janitor, dishwasher, car washer, busboy, lawn mower – less and less time, which seemed to bother everyone but him. Being as it was his life, he saw no reason to explain himself. He knew what he was doing: searching for his niche. Once he found it, he would settle down.
Prompt: Name your third pet peeve.
Word of the Day: poetaster – n. a writer of mediocre verse; rhymester; would-be poet (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.
