Monday Musings #25

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 was the shortest job you ever had?

Sentence: Tally Gaitskell figured his boss must have scored high in his administrative delegation course.

Paragraph: Tina Bryant’s heart sunk as she checked out the racquetball tournament’s brackets. She was matched against Gloria Harquest, who had the #1 women’s killshot. Heck, she practices with guys! Tina, 32, had only taken up racquetball three years earlier. Though introduced to the sport by an ex-boyfriend, it had becomeĀ her passion. The boyfriend left; the racquetball stayed. On the other hand, Harquest was a twelve-year veteran of the game and had all the practice time she wanted thanks to her wealthy husband.

Prompt: Name the worst thing you ever did as a kid. Did anybody find out or has it been a secret you will take to the grave?

Word of the Day: res gestae – n. pl. 1. things done; accomplishments; deeds. 2. Law. the acts, circumstances, and statements that are incidental to the principal fact of a litigated matter and are admissible in evidence.

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