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: Where do you go to get away from it all?
Sentence: As usual, Murray accounted for everything on his annual hunting trip, but being bitten by a rabid raccoon never occurred to him.
Paragraph: Phoebe never went to the laundromat at night, even though it was an upscale one. Upscale – that always amused her. Using a laundromat usually meant you could not afford your own washer and dryer or your apartment complex did not have an on-premise facility. She felt pathetic and she hated feeling pathetic, but not pathetic enough to take her laundry to her parents’ house, even if they weren’t there. So, she put off washing her clothes until she was out of underwear, which is what she always bought more of with what little she could save.
Prompt: Name something you always bugged your parents about.
Word of the Day: callow – adj : lacking adult sophistication : IMMATURE (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.
