Tuesday Tips #106

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: Have you ever threatened anyone?

Sentence: Nosey ducked under the table to hide from her brother, who was screaming to get his hands on her.

Paragraph: Being quarantined’s for sissy nerds, Jimbo muttered as he paced his techless room. He was the adventurous type. No, more like a dare devil. No, a super hero! He belonged outside. In the fresh air and elements. Stalking through the woods and climbing trees. Plunging into the old quarry water. Not stuck inside this puny space.

Prompt: Using the alphabet, create a word list describing you and your life. For example: a is for austere…h is for hungry…o is for orphan.

Word of the Day: dulcify v.t. 1. to make more agreeable; mollify; appease. 2. to sweeten. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
