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: Who can you count on to lift your spirits?
Sentence: In the empty church, Amelia Marie Ramirez Quiroz rapidly touched the holy water, crossed herself, and curtsied before heading directly to the confessional.
Paragraph: The Devil put his fiery fingers together and frowned at the supine disciple writhing before him. He had made an exception of this particular soul by repeating his instructions twice now, but it seemed he would have to make an example of him instead. It was so unlike him to hesitate, to waver from dispensing eternal agony that he felt an infinitesimal flicker of fear of weakness, which was completely unacceptable. Without further thought, he tore the soul apart and scattered the pieces into the netherworld, where they would forever seek wholeness.
Prompt: Describe playing with a balloon and your surprise when it popped.
Word of the Day: peculate – vt : EMBEZZLE (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
