Monday Musings #110

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 keeps you humble?

Sentence: From the closet Annette heard the laughter of her cousins streaming through the house.

Paragraph: If ever a man deserved a break, it was Daniel Morbaine. From the day he was born a fog of doom enshrouded him. The poor child did not stand a chance at happiness. His too-young mother died before her thin body completely released him. His too-old father wanted nothing to do with him and sent him away as soon as the doctor announced he would live.

Prompt: Describe your sense of humor.

Word of the Day: impudicity n. indecency; shamelessness; immodesty. (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.


About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort
    to make a great article… but what can I say… I hesitate a
    lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

      Thank you, Maritza…Don’t hesitate, don’t concentrate. Plunge forward and fall into the work until you’re spent. Then, you can hesitate, edit, and rewrite.
