Monday Musings #66

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: Are you the first writer/author in your family?

Sentence: It was an ordinary day when, in an ordinary way, I lost my virginity.

Paragraph: I have often thought of escape, either by killing myself or just walking away. I have no business living in this world. It is not right for me. I am not what I am meant to be. And it so saddens me that no one else can see this. Perhaps because they do not truly look at me, because I say and do as I am expected to, or because I make no fuss. I am invisible and ignored in this life…Perhaps it is time to take advantage of that.

Prompt: Name the person who has taught you the most about life.

Word of the Day: pulverulent adj. 1 consisting of or covered with a powder; powdery  2 crumbling to powder or dust (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.

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.
