Monday Musings #100

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 would make you wish to be dead?

Sentence: As usual, the Josephs in 503 woke me up; then I remembered they were out of town.

Paragraph: The blizzard could have left Calloway snowed in for days, if not longer, had he not created an exterior door in the attic’s south side wall the previous summer. Although decades earlier the original owner had had the foresight to place the front door on the east side because the worst winter storms came from the west, they had neglected to add another escape for when eight feet or more of snow blocked that door. This time, after two days of being comfortable inside, Calloway left the cabin by the attic door and snowshoed through the forest to check on his elderly neighbors two miles away.

Prompt: Name someone who embarrassed you lately.

Word of the Day: gustatory – adj. of or pertaining to taste or tasting.  (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.
