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: Are you a serious person or will you never be one?
Sentence: Ferris Park was no longer a safe place for families.
Paragraph: Before going into the shop, Mareesha huddled into herself and counted the coins one more time. She could not bear the shame of having too little money, like before. She bit her tongue to forget the memory and stiffened her back. Sharp bones stuck out from her body, unfed for two days.
Prompt: Detail a stranger’s unexpected reaction to you.
Word of the Day: ineluctable – adj. incapable of being evaded; inescapable. (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.
