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 complicated person?
Sentence: Sitting atop the boulder, she gazed out over the valley, slowed her heart and lungs, and cleared her mind of all but one thought.
Paragraph: “Fortuitous.” “Ubiquitous.” “Italicize.” “Realization.” Sammy heard Ms. Howard saying the spelling words, but he did not write them down. He did not care about stupid words. He did not care about stupid Ms. Howard or stupid school. He cared about Grandma, and she was dead. She would never tease him or tickle him or hug him ever again.
Prompt: Creatively explain something unexplainable.
Word of the Day: illation – n 1 : the action of inferring : INFERENCE 2 : a conclusion inferred (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.
