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 have you been instantly ashamed?
Sentence: Pondering the rubble of his life, Tory Bunker realized his sleuthing days were over.
Paragraph: “Dust doesn’t rot,” a dazzling speaker at an enormous focus group had announced many years earlier. Perhaps not, Sheryl thought, but it sure builds up. As she thoroughly swiped every flat surface, ridge, and cranny, she remembered that weekend of positivity. It had been enlightening, to say the least, filling her with hope and confidence and self-esteem. So much so that she had had the resolve to end her miserable marriage and chart a better future.
Prompt: Identify a person you would be surprised to see on your doorstep.
Word of the Day: ugsome – adj archaic : FRIGHTFUL, LOATHSOME (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
