Monday Musings #96

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: Are more of a giver or a taker?

Sentence: Emily was in a constant state of botheration.

Paragraph: There was a glowing angel above my bed, but everyone in the room kept looking at me and ignoring her. When I tried talking and raising my arm to point to her, nothing happened. I think I frowned, but the angel touched my heart and I felt happy. I really wanted them to see her, so I tried smiling and pointing upwards with my chin. This only made tears run down the faces of Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Sue, and Ginger Lee. What’s the matter? Then the angel reached out her arms to me and I felt loved all over.

Prompt: Identify three behaviors that puzzle you.

Word of the Day: kleptocracy n : government by those who seek chiefly status and personal gain at the expense of the governed; also : a particular government of this kind (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.
