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: How do you handle fear?
Sentence: Despite his mind-boggling fuck ups, Coleman’s mother refused to surrender and allow him to turn out like his worthless father.
Paragraph: What was that? Aurora swiveled her head, but nothing was there. There it is again. Turning her good ear in the direction from which the sound seemed to be coming, she held still. There was more than the leaves rustling. More than the squirrels scampering. Gravel. Someone was trying not to disturb the gravel.
Prompt: Name something that makes you automatically lick your lips.
Word of the Day: antipodean – adj syn OPPOSITE, antipodal, antithetical, contradictory, contrary, converse, counter, diametric, polar, reverse (Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, 1976)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
