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: Around whom do you feel clumsy?
Sentence: Man, how did such a great day turn to shit? wondered Ellie, lying on a gurney.
Paragraph: The tone of Hatcher’s voice told me to steer clear, so I 180ed outside his door as though I’d forgotten something. I had: my courage. I needed a raise. I deserved a raise. After three years of doing his lame assignments and gophering, I was such a cliche – a wuss – but so was he – a bully. Even though I knew that meant he had issues and should be pitied, I kept putting off asking for more money, because I had issues, too.
