Monday Musings #68

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/who makes your heart instantly race?

Sentence: Sometimes I wonder what pleases me anymore.

Paragraph: After removing the wig and makeup, Marcelle left the studio unrecognized, which was the whole point. Disappearing as a mouse once more, a nobody-special, gave her great satisfaction. She was nobody special, just somebody people admired for all the wrong reasons. Dressed in colors that distracted eyes away from her face, she walked to a bus stop. A different one from the previous day, not wanting to meet anyone familiar and possibly be acknowledged with a nod or a faint smile. When the bus finally came, she passed rows of self-absorbed riders or chatting twosomes and took a seat near the back.

Prompt: Name the place you feel safe and at peace.

Word of the Day: intromitvt : to send or put in : INSERT (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.
