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 did you start questioning everything you were being told?
Sentence: It took him all day to plant thorny bushes around his house, but he was determined to protect his family from thieves, rapists, kidnappers, and murderers.
Paragraph: Raylynn knew better. She had been told a zillion times not to open a shut door. She had been warned and she had been punished. But the monsters in her bedroom continued to torment her. They did not care if she got into trouble. They probably wanted her to get into trouble. She stood beside her parents’ closed door and looked down the hall to her bedroom. As soon as the ugliest, biggest one came through the doorway, Ramona turned the forbidden doorknob. It was locked.
Prompt: Name something good about being sick.
Word of the Day: badinage – n. playful, teasing talk; banter (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
