Monday Musings #85

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 does October hold for you?

Sentence: Lately, politics had replaced sex in Neal Henderson’s life.

Paragraph: Nora was getting too far ahead of herself. No wonder she felt time closing in, suffocating her. At first, she was just trying to be efficient and scheduling a week in advance. Then she could not stop herself from planning each day for three weeks, not allowing for any errors or surprises or deviations. But they happened. They always happened. She could not control time; it was controlling her and messing with her mind.

Prompt: Explain your favorite part of language (grammar/punctuation, metaphors, spelling, structure, homonyms, dialect, etc.).

Word of the Day: divagate v.i. 1. to wander; stray.  2. to digress in speech. (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.
