Wednesday Wits #103

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 gives you reservations?

Sentence: As Shaheed drew close to the popular American cafe, his lips moved in prayer for a rich afterlife.

Paragraph: From my limited view on the cold cement floor, I watched as the huge metal doors clanked closed on me. Frigging duct tape  – cheap favorite of contractors and criminals alike – covered my mouth, bound my hands behind me and my bare ankles together. I shut my unswollen eye to let it adjust to the darkness, hoping for a sliver of light from the doorway in this stupid windowless room. How do bad guys always find the best abandoned buildings?

Prompt: Name your last impulse buy.

Word of the Day: aphonia n. loss of voice due to an organic or functional disorder (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.

  1. great blog title first of all! and i like what you are doing here. we all need a little inspiration now and then to not give up on our artistic pursuits. I just started a video blog on the creative process/evolution of arts culture from my perspective as a singer/songwriter. the subject just fascinates me! i see you are well traveled. i’m from Pennsylvania, but i also lived in Costa Rica for a year when I was traveling/teaching. thanks for your post!
