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: Do you choose your friends or do they choose you?
Sentence: Whatever it was that had ticked Scooter off, Claire was pretty sure she did not deserve his filthy words.
Paragraph: The smell of coffee was not in the air when he awoke. The heater had not been turned on either. It took a few minutes for his mind’s morning fog to clear before he realized he was alone. “What the fuck?” he said aloud as he got out of bed. Pulling on a sweatshirt, he headed downstairs and turned up the thermostat on the way.
Prompt: Name a talent you wish you had.

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