Monday Musings #92

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 oils the machinations of your mind?

Sentence: A hand reached for her in the dark, but she could not feel it.

Paragraph: The children crawled beneath the house and waited, patiently, used to the crashing and banging above. They whispered and giggled, herded beetles and spiders, and played with small caches of secret things. Their frequent visits to their hiding place kept it smooth and inviting. They felt no jealousy of other children’s treehouses, which could not protect them against lightning, rain, and snow.

Prompt: Choose a characteristic (selfishness, shyness, kindheartedness, laziness, etc.) and list the good and the bad sides of it.

Word of the Day: hypnagogic also hypnogogic adj : of, relating to, or occurring in the period of drowsiness immediately preceding sleep (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 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.
