Monday Musings #88

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 go to the doctor for every little thing?

Sentence: Only “Waltzing Matilda” could lullaby Lorraine to sleep.

Paragraph: “Rollie…Rollie…Rollie, it’s time to go!” went unanswered. Not that Mabel expected her wandering son to respond immediately, but she had told him that morning about the appointment they had with Dr. Justin. Her fault. She should have begun calling him sooner, having no idea where or how he spent his days all by himself. He loved being outside and it did not cost anything; he was not like her brothers, who had always begged their parents for toys. “Rollieeeee!” She should get a whistle or bell.

Prompt: Purposefully write an atrocious or nonsensical poem or paragraph.

Word of the Day: misdo v.t.  to do badly or wrongly; botch. (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 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.
