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: How long has it been since you gave your brain a vacation?
Sentence: Trudy stumbled when she saw “FU SLUT” on her cell.
Paragraph: The fog and rain limited visibility, which suited him well. He had dressed accordingly, all in gray, to blend in should anyone be looking. But traffic was minimal and no pedestrians were about. He passed closed shop after closed shop, not bothering to look in and not wanting to see his reflection – a lone figure with no flesh showing. A walking shadow of unknown substance.
Prompt: Identify someone you know whose face does not match their demeanor.
Word of the Day: heuristic – adj. 1. serving to indicate or point out; stimulating interest as a means of furthering investigation. 2. encouraging a person to learn, discover, understand, or solve problems on his or her own, as by experimenting, evaluating possible answers or solutions, or by trial and error: a heuristic teaching method. 3. of, pertaining to, or based on experimentation, evaluation, or trial-and-error methods. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
