Monday Musings #34

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: How far do you dare go?

Sentence: She waited and waited for someone to rescue her, but no one could.

Paragraph: Tory Jones, age 12, found his mom hanging from the ceiling fan. After calling his dad, he lay on the floor beneath her. Anger grew as he remained dry-eyed. He wondered why she had had kids if she didn’t want to take care of them, why she hung herself so that he would be the one to find her, and why the hell was she such a jerk? He turned onto his side, curled up into a ball, and cried.

Prompt: Name your favorite aroma or scent, be it food, flora, or manufactured fragrance.

Word of the Day: habile – adj : having general skill : ABLE, SKILLFUL (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, 2011)

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