Monday Musings #89

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 outfit or piece of clothing do you like so much that you would prefer to wear it everyday until it falls apart?

Sentence: Ignoring the colorfully decorated packages and bags on the gift table, the birthday boy reached for a plain paper package that had arrived by mail.

Paragraph: Using both hands, Sabatha wielded her sword with ease. Forged by her father, it weighed three stone, but to the sturdy young woman the weapon was a mere extension of her arms. The village men, gladly accepting her help against marauders, never considered her wife material, which was fine by her. She did not brood or complain about being one of the boys; she relished their bawdiness and often won at arm wrestling.

Prompt: Relate the time when you were brave in a crisis.

Word of the Day: malison – n : CURSE, MALEDICTION (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.

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.
