Monday Musings #21

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: Do you have an architectural preference?

Sentence: When Royce woke up to get a drink of water, he noticed light beneath the office door.

Paragraph: Rain began in the middle of the night. It came without thunder and lightning. Drips of water fell into empty pails in the backyard. Then it came off the eaves in such a loud clatter that woke the baby up. Emily reached over and brought Sofia to her ready breast. Daniel slept on. And so it went.

Prompt: You are feeling adventurous today, so you are going to try a new restaurant. Which one will you choose? What will you order? Why have you been putting it off? Who recommended it or did you read a review of it?

Word of the Day: gemmule – n. 1. a small gemma. 2. any asexually produced cluster of cells capable of developing into a new individual.  (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.

I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border.
