Monday Musings #57

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 do you feel you were born to do with your life?

Sentence: Politicians are like snake oil salesmen, pandering to your fears with hollow promises and out-n-out lies.

Paragraph: Ellie was a super-recognizer. She could remember every face she had ever seen, as well as recognize the face of someone famous from a child photograph. Sometimes this extraordinary ability would lead people to suspect she had been stalking them, because she told them they had briefly seen or met each other on such and such day at such and such place. The person of the moment would look at her oddly like she was some kind of freak. Perhaps she was, but Ellie could be useful, too. In fact, she seemed destined to work in law enforcement, where face recognition was essential.

Prompt: Identify something you do not understand.

Word of the Day: indocile adj : unwilling or indisposed to be taught or disciplined : INTRACTABLE (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.
