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)
