Monday Musings #101

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 is the latest personal disaster you averted?

Sentence: Nash couldn’t sleep; every time he closed his eyes he saw her luscious naked body.

Paragraph: I believe it must have surprised Steven that I did not have a lover in the wings after I left him. In fact, he was the first to remarry. That I did not rush into another man’s arms only served to remind him that I found him lacking, which he and his mother refused to acknowledge. However, neither would ponder this rejection; instead, they would put me at fault, as they had his previous wives. With emotions and introspection being nonexistent in their ken, I suppose, they will maintain a hateful grudge against me for the rest of my life.

Prompt: Name someone you misjudged.

Word of the Day: ratiocination n 1 : the process of exact thinking : REASONING  2 : a reasoned train of thought (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.
