Monday Musings #98

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: Does tonight have any special significance for you?

Sentence: Essie Brooks made a totally anomalous remark, causing everyone at the conference table to turn their heads towards her.

Paragraph: The Edwardses rewarded rather than pampered their only child, and he never disappointed them. They treated him with respect and received it in turn. They acquiesced to his few requests and gladly gave him the finest education, which he greatly appreciated. Yes, Robert Monroe Edwards III had always been a model son. He merely lacked emotion, but then so did his parents.

Prompt: List five uncommon words that you know the meaning of (such as laconic) but rarely, if ever, use in daily conversations.

Word of the Day: enounce v.t. 1. to utter or pronounce, as words; enunciate.  2. to announce, declare, or proclaim.  3. to state definitely, as a proposition. (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.
