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: What outfit brings out the best in you?
Sentence: As the storm approached, the wild wind whistled through the waving weeping willows.
Paragraph: Although his capture, trial, and conviction had been expeditious, ten years passed before the state managed to execute Thomas W. Stevens. As I watched his pathetic life ebb, I prayed with all my heart that there was a hell to forever consume and torment his unremorseful soul. While the curtains behind the glass were drawn and the other witnesses left, I remained behind in a foggy trance until a tap on my shoulder unclouded my mind. I rose knowing the uncertainty of my life had not dissipated.
Prompt: Name your favorite sound.
Word of the Day: limn – vt limned; limning 1 : to draw or paint on a surface 2 : to outline in clear sharp detail : DELINEATE 3 : DESCRIBE <the novel ~s the frontier life of the settlers> (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.
