Monday Musings #9

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 do you miss about being a child?

Sentence: The old porch swing hung lopsided now, but I remember when it was nearly new.

Paragraph: Totally free of stress for the first time in eighteen years, David Halloway whistled as he settled into his deckside suite on the Argosy III cruise ship. Not wanting any interruptions, he had requested not to be disturbed for any reason. He expected absolute privacy and would eat, roam, and exercise when, and if, he pleased. To that end, the steward assigned to him had been paid quite adequately to leave him alone.

Prompt: Whoops, you blew it, the interview of a lifetime. Describe what went wrong and why?

Word of the Day: fascicle – n. 1. a section of a book or set of books being published in installments as separate pamphlets or volumes. 2. a small bundle, tight cluster, or the like. 3. a close cluster, as of flowers or leaves. 4. a small bundle of nerve or muscle fibers. (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.
