Monday Musings #17

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 could you stare at for hours?

Sentence: “Look over there, Momma! Look over there! That man doesn’t have any clothes on!”

Paragraph: Realizing that he was making a fool of himself did not stop him from continuing his rant. Perched upon the bar, well into his liquor, Perry Sumner was embarrassing his friends. Peter Alexander and David Williams had thought it had been a good idea to drag Perry out of his smelly apartment. They insisted he needed to get drunk to temporarily forget losing his job, although that’s what he had been doing at home for days. Hence, the smelly apartment, as well as smelly Perry.

Prompt: Describe interviewing for a job you really want. Do you feel confident in your appearance and resume? Was there rapport? Do you feel you impressed them?

Word of the Day: LIFO – n. a system for valuing inventories; as in last in, first out (Oxford American Dictionary, Heald Colleges Edition, 1980)

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