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 was the shock heard around your family’s world?
Sentence: I didn’t tell Mum about the goings-on at Denis’ house, until I came downstairs naked and she nearly choked asking me, “What the hell da ya think ya’re doin’?”
Paragraph: Winky the elephant wandered off one day, leaving behind safety and security. The herd had no idea she had done so on purpose and would not have understood anyway. She had told no one that soon after she was weaned, something deep inside her head kept whispering, There’s more to life than this, dearie. Even though she had been puzzled at first, she resisted the urge to confide in anyone and staved off the allure of adventure as long as possible – until it became an itch she had to scratch.
Prompt: Explain a holiday you don’t observe.
Word of the Day: obtrude – v.t. 1. to thrust (something) forward or upon a person, esp. without warrant or invitation. 2. to thrust forth; push out. – v.i. 3. to thrust forward, esp. unduly; intrude. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
