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 do you do when something makes no sense?
Sentence: Gazing at all the tubes and beeping machines attached to his Maveen, Emmett Pound became petrified of losing her.
Paragraph: After much driving around, Aurora Johnson parked her van in one of the last slots available for the rally. It would be a long walk to the staging area, but it was necessary. Since the Governor had slashed billions from the education fund, thousands of teachers had been fired and classrooms bulged to ineffectiveness again, causing the state’s children to be improperly educated. Along with Aurora, five passengers got out of the van with their signs and water bottles at the ready. The six of them, solemn but excited, headed off on their mission.
Prompt: Name your favorite park.
Word of the Day: clang-tint – n. timbre. (MRS. BYRNE’S DICTIONARY of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words BY JOSEFA HEIFETZ BYRNE. Secaucus, NJ: Citadel Press and University Books, 1974.)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
