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: Why does life have to be so complicated?
Sentence: The intonation in that one “MARCH!” declared that he would not tolerate any slacking.
Paragraph: From the harem window she could see the sea of sand beyond. From the forbidden books she had read she knew of oceans, fragrant trees, mountains, and air so cold that only animal fur would keep one warm. She wanted very much to believe these strange tales, but dared not speak to anyone about them. Because the palace had ears everywhere, she traveled in her mind to magical places where there were no camels.
Prompt: Explain what can limit or obstruct your ability to concentrate.
Word of the Day: uncinate – adj. bent like a hook; hooked (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)
