Monday Musings #108

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: Will wonders ever cease?

Sentence: Anyone could tell that Tristan was not experiencing ordinary perplexity.

Paragraph: She scrabbled through the brambles, oblivious to the briars, thorns, and nettle scraping, scratching, and slicing her skin. The pain was all in her mind. He had taught her that. And so much more.

Prompt: Explain the difference between “complimenting one another” and “opposites attract.”

Word of the Day: mang v.t. & i. 1. to lead or go astray.  2. to be anxious or puzzled. (MRS. BYRNE’S DICTIONARY of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words BY JOSEFA HEIFETZ BYRNE. Secaucus, NJ: Citadel Press and University Books, 1974)

If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
