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: To what are you oblivious?
Sentence: “Envelope me in your love,” sang the songwriter, “but give nothing of yourself away…”
Paragraph: With the tide coming in, the annual Santa Cruz Sand Sculpture Contest was nearly over. Sea lions under the 2700-foot long wharf continued to bark their protest of the hundreds of onlookers above, who were not allowed to feed them. Large seagulls and pelicans dropped their objectionable messages upon the milling throng that kept them from resting on the railings.
Word of the Day: fain – Archaic. adv. 1. gladly; willingly: He fain would accept… – adj. 2. content; willing. 3. constrained; obliged. 4. glad; pleased. 5. desirous; eager. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
