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: Do your antagonists usually resemble anyone you know?
Sentence: Violet was her name, suicide was her game.
Paragraph: A grumbling began in the back of St. John’s United Methodist Church as soon as the visiting minister, Reverend Anthony Traveen, stepped forward to deliver his sermon. Unlike many parishioners of Methodist churches around the country, those at St John’s were well-informed, well-read, and open-minded. Traveen’s reputation preceded him. His virulent views were an anathema to all they felt untouchable, and they had no qualms about disapproving his message before it came out of his mouth.
Prompt: Write a haiku to Mother Nature.
Word of the Day: cataplexy – n : sudden loss of muscle power following a strong emotional stimulus (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.
