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: When was your last epiphany?
Sentence: As the restaurant’s dinner din increased, Maggie desperately wished all the diners developed instant aphonia.
Paragraph: By 4725 Earth had become peaceful. It did not happen by war or diplomacy; it took natural catastrophe after catastrophe to topple governments and decimate countries. The world’s population diminished drastically to one billion with some peopleless countries reverting back to nature. With nations destroyed, restructuring took nearly ninety years, until Continents were overseen by councils of five women and five men, who could teleport to any designated meeting site.
Prompt: Describe something ridiculous that you’ve seen people do.
Word of the Day: percipient – adj. perceiving, esp. keenly or readily – n. a person who perceives (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.
