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 know that you don’t know?
Sentence: The fire’s heat warmed only his body; it could not unchill his mind.
Paragraph: Darcy danced down the stairs, then up, then down and landed with a jumping thud at the bottom. Alone, she could do as she pleased, to a certain degree. Unsuited for rebellion, certainly incapable of being a hellion, Darcy nonetheless planned to do as much as she usually was not allowed to do in the short time she had. If she somehow made a mess, she would give herself plenty of time to clean it up.
Prompt: Name an instance when you almost “lost it.”
Word of the Day: bonnyclabber – n. thickly curdled sour milk (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.
