Monday Musings #87

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: To whom are you most attached?

Sentence: The day after her first workout, Jennifer Thomas felt as though her brain had been transplanted into an old lady’s body.

Paragraph: The snow crunched (Why did it have to “crunch?” What if it was powdery snow, then what would the sound be?) under his heavy boots. The frosty air (Of course, it’s frosty. It’s friggin’ below zero!) made him hold his breath for a moment, before he exhaled warm air from his lungs. (LIfe is just amazin’!) Suddenly in the silence of his stillness, he heard an odd, out-of-place sound. (Now you’ve done it! What could possibly be out-of-place in the Canadian wilderness, where you’ve never been before?)  

Prompt: Name your least favorite hairstyle.

Word of the Day: revanchism n. the revengeful spirit moving a defeated nation to aggressively seek restoration of territories, etc. (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, 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.
