Monday Musings #59

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 little white lie haunts you?

Sentence: Bobby’s face turned crimson as his fart blasted into the classroom.

Paragraph: In the year 2099, little had changed on Earth. Whonang, the Great Philosopher, lay fasting in his Wyoming aerie, contemplating the last seventy years of his life. Although billions of people around the world followed and understood his teachings, he felt thoroughly disappointed in himself for having been unable to enlighten those in power. Yes, solar, wind, and thermal energy had replaced fossil fuel, coal, and nuclear energy, but that had not stopped tyranny, violence, and wars. He had been unable to convince world leaders that only Oneness was the true way, that peace and kindness was in their best interest. An eagle called out and Whonang wearily watched it soar overhead. Then he wanly smiled, No, magnificent one, I will not give up.

Prompt: Explain your best revenge on a bully.

Word of the Day: homomorphismn. 1. correspondence in form or external appearance. 2. possession of perfect flowers of only one kind. (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.
