Monday Musings #70

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: Do you have a difficult time having fun, cutting loose?

Sentence: Shortly after moving in with Trace, Tricia realized that morning hard-ons had absolutely nothing to do with love or attraction.

Paragraph: After brushing her teeth, Dora turned around and stepped into the bedroom. Suddenly, she felt empty, totally empty from head to toe, as if she had instantly become invisible and her life was nothingness. Whoa!, she thought, spreading out her arms to steady herself. She closed her eyes and shook her head to feel some sensation. It’s that damn movie! It made her want to be in that life being portrayed. A life with a problem, a solution, and a satisfying ending that would never stop. She did not have that kind of life; hers was nothing but uncertainty after uncertainty.

Prompt: Describe the first time weather screwed up your romantic plans.

Word of the Day: numinous adj 1 : SUPERNATURAL, MYSTERIOUS  2 : filled with the sense of the presence of divinity : HOLY  3 : appealing to the higher emotions or to the aesthetic sense : SPIRITUAL (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.
