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: Towards what type of personality do you gravitate?
Sentence: Glancing in the rearview mirror, Forrester could have sworn that bend in the road had not been there before.
Paragraph: Claudia sat in the sunroom, sipping tea while attempting to consider her next course of action. The surrounding grayness of the sky, however, dulled her thoughts into apathy, as the bottom of the mug grew cool on her thigh. John’s jarring phone tone vibrated on the glass-top table beside her and jangled her nerves. She looked over at it with a slow blink of acknowledgement. He won’t be needing that anymore. A whisper of a smile touched her lips.
Prompt: Using examples, explain the difference between a routine and a rut.
Word of the Day: epigone – n. an undistinguished imitator, follower, or successor of an important writer, painter, etc. (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.
