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: When were you recently impatient?
Sentence: Before the sun filled the sky again, Morrie Trumaine had much to do.
Paragraph: “Elizabeth,” my withered grandmother whispered, “my heart isn’t into living any longer.” And, giving me a wan smile, she left this world. I grasped her dry hand and wept. She had been my inspiration and she knew it, but she left me anyway. For a moment, I childishly wanted to swipe at my eyes and stomp around the small room. Instead, I raised my head and let the tears dry into salt on my cheeks before leaving her to phone the funeral home.
Prompt: List three things you did not do on your last vacation.
Word of the Day: quotidian – adj 1 : occurring everyday < ~ fever> 2 a : belonging to each day : EVERYDAY < ~ routine> b : COMMONPLACE, ORDINARY < ~ drabness> (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
