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’s so funny?
Sentence: No one could accuse Malcolm Weams of pedantry.
Paragraph: She could not run as fast as she needed to down the gravel path. Despite her immediate desperation, the childhood memory of falling and breaking her wrist restricted her speed. Looking for an opening in the briars that lined the narrow lane, she strained to hear sounds of pursuit, but there was only the huffing of her own breathing.
Prompt: Name two issues you skirt around.
Word of the Day: deflagrate – vt., vi. to burn rapidly, with intense heat and dazzling light (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.
