Saturday Word of the Day: Sashay

*Sashay: to glide, move, or proceed easily or nonchalantly. Everything came easily to Belinda, or at least it appeared to. There was a way about her, a light to her actions.

Wednesday Prompt Smash: The book of stars

Prompt: The book of stars Word Limit: 200 words Marni was not a good apprentice, and nobody was shy about telling her this.
