Saturday Ideas #102

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 do you have a tough time juggling?

Sentence: As the light of day shone bright, not all of the night creatures slunk back into their dens on four feet.

Paragraph: Trapped beneath the heavy bookcase, she could only take shallow breaths. Since she could not feel or move her limbs, her back was probably broken. She had no alternative but to stay calm and not pass out again, hoping to be able to call out to Harold, the security guard, when he made his rounds. However, having no idea what time it was, he may have already stuck his head in the Archives door. At that thought, her heart sped up, causing her to breathe deeper. Excruciating pain from her lungs expanding drove her to the dark edge of consciousness. She slowly blew out the hurtful air and sipped it back in more carefully. Closing her eyes in concentration, she wondered, How did he find me?

Prompt: Name your first achievement.

Word of the Day: logorrhea n : excessive and often incoherent talkativeness or wordiness  (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.
