Monday Musings #7

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: Are you curious about your ancestors?

Sentence: As soon as dawn broke, the sound of wood being split echoed down the canyon.

Paragraph: The bars on the two high windows could not stop the sun from shining through, and that was all that mattered to me. There was nothing to stand on so that I could see what was outside, but those windows kept me from feeling totally trapped. However, that is exactly what I was – imprisoned in a tiny, damp cell. Not exactly the way I thought my birthday would go.

Prompt: Imagine living in a treehouse in a location of your choice. Describe your fervor/reasons and all the logistics involved.

Word of the Day: lekvar – n. a jamlike spread of prunes or apricots, often used as a pastry filling (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.
