Monday Musings #77

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: How many words (sans proper nouns) can you derive from your full name?

Sentence: Rhona concentrated on Dr. Geissen’s Escher-patterned tie.

Paragraph: Posture – what a bother! It is so much easier to stoop and slump. However, one must consider what posture reveals about a person. Good posture conveys competence and self-confidence. Rounded shoulders and bowed head are usually synonymous with an inferiority complex, which makes one curious as to the cause, as well as attracting the worst sort of beau. Take cousin Emmaline, for example, although it truly pains me to reflect upon her tragic memory.

Prompt: Write an elegy for a vice or bad habit you have had to give up.

Word of the Day: belvedere n. a structure, as a turret, cupola, or gazebo, designed and situated to look out upon a pleasing view. (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.

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, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 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.
