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: Have you been a heartbreaker or a heartbreakee?
Sentence: Unlike his predecessor, Tarrant ruled his underground domain strictly but compassionately.
Paragraph: As the citizens of Ledgerton enjoyed the much anticipated, annual fireworks display, two citizens of nearby Lambert came calling. Not to their surprise, no one answered their knocks or doorbell ringing. Few houses were locked and only a smattering had barking dogs. The nefarious duo made away with quite a haul in their thirty-minute visit, leaving Ledgerton as its inhabitants began strolling or driving home.
Word of the Day: operose – adj : TEDIOUS, WEARISOME (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.
