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: Where would you like to go cruising?
Sentence: A simple life was all that Herbert Durant had in mind; however, fate intervened.
Paragraph: As the children looked through the glass-bottomed boat, they saw bubbles coming up through the sandy bottom in various places. State Parks and Recreation Ranger Tanner Cane explained that the water bubbles came from underground springs, which produced thousands of gallons of water per minute. The girls pointed at the fish and turtles swimming by, ewwing and ahhing until excitement filled the air. Mrs. Malroy, their fourth grade teacher, noticed that the boys were only pretending to be bored, poking each other with elbows and whispering. She silently bet herself which one would accidentally fall overboard and sighed.
Prompt: Divulge a secret craving and expand on it.
Word of the Day: vizard – n 1 : a mask for disguise or protection 2 : DISGUISE, GUISE (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)
