Saturday Ideas #110

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: Can you plot a flawless murder?

Sentence: “Let’s hear it for our own fabulous Mocha Montaine!” Maury fervently introduced the fantastically fried headliner – me.

Paragraph: My little brother Bobby died when I was five, so I didn’t know him very well. One day he was pestering me, getting in my space, and one day he was gone. They put him in a little blue box and set him in front of the preacher at church. I remember that much because so many grown-ups were crying.

Prompt: Make an unbelievable situation believable.

Word of the Day: nubilous adj. 1 cloudy; misty; foggy  2 obscure; indefinite (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.

    I think there have been more than a few, but they were never found out. 🙂
