Tuesday Tips #115

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: What type of vehicle would you prefer to drive?

Sentence: Without looking back, he dared her to follow him.

Paragraph: If ever a couple were well suited for one another, it was Caitlin Sullivan and Donovan Kincaid. So like-minded, they finished each other’s sentences from the get go. Their differences were rare, minor, and unimportant for they shared caring souls. Before they were married, Caitlin realized Donovan liked to talk, which was fine with her. On long drives in their first few years together, Kate would pose a question or make a comment so that Donovan could gladly enlighten her or explain his view. Then she could think about whatever she wanted to.

Prompt: Explain something you have experienced to someone who never will.

Word of the Day: waggery n.  the action, spirit, or manner of a wag; roguish jocularity or merriment  2 a joke or jest; esp. , a practical joke (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
