Monday Musings #61

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: Where on Earth would you rather be?

Sentence: “Currently, I am unemployed and at your disposal.”

Paragraph: Osgood looked over at the rows of servants’ bells to see which one was ringing, knowing full well he was the one being summoned. He briefly closed his eyes and braced himself, wondering for the umpteenth time how much longer he would be able to withstand attending to the irascible, irrational master of the manor.

Prompt: Describe a time or two that you have been lucky in fortune or fate.

Word of the Day: champerty n. a sharing in the proceeds of litigation in return for helping to prosecute or defend a case. (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.

About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.

    Hi, Cyranette! I’ve really been enjoying exploring your blog, and I’ve gotten some great inspiration from it. I don’t have time to write as much as I’d like, but when I get the time to piece together a story using some ideas from your posts, I’d love to have you read it. I’m working towards being an editor. For right now I’m just trying to bust into some freelance writing, and I’m happy to take any advice I can get!
