Monday Musings #32

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 read a book before or after it becomes a movie?

Sentence: Without much forethought, Roy Emerson sailed a cheap, little styrofoam “boat” across the tanker channel to a manmade island.

Paragraph: Stoned, Stubens rubbed his balls with bacon grease and had the next door neighbor’s pitbull lick it off. When he grew hard, the dog clamped onto his penis, as if it were a bone, and would not let go. After screaming, Stubens quickly sobered and looked around for his cell phone. Spotting it across the room, he simultaneously, carefully stood and picked up the dog. Stubens slowly started to slide his feet along the carpet, but forgot that his jeans were around his ankles. Consequently, he fell forward in such a way that the powerful canine jaws separated the poor man from his most precious body part.

Prompt: Make an abstract outline for the next three months of your life.

Word of the Day: tondo – n. a round painting (WEBSTER’S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 3rd ed., 1996)

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