NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 30/Day 14

Advice: find new ways to inspire yourself. Create mood boards for your book. Grab pictures of actors or models that fit your characters. Add pictures of scenes, houses, towns, objects or places of interest. Find art that matches the mood of your story and makes you feel the way you want your characters, and readers, to feel.
If browsing pintrest is too much of a distraction for you, find pictures to print and make a bulletin board to hang over your desk or writing space…or make them into your computer’s desktop screen to provide constant motivation.
But remember, don't let these distractions get in the way of WORDS!

Prompt: Your character wakes up thinking “Oh no, what have I done…”

See synonyms for: burgeon / burgeoning on
1. bloom, blossom, mushroom, thrive.

The two senses of burgeon, “to bud” ( The maples are burgeoning ) and “to grow or flourish” ( The suburbs around the city have been burgeoning under the impact of commercial growth ), date from the 14th century. Today the sense “to grow or flourish” is the more common. Occasionally, objections are raised to the use of this sense, perhaps because of its popularity in journalistic writing.

Origin: First recorded in 1275–1325; (noun) Middle English burjon, burion “shoot, bud,” from Anglo-French burjun, burg(e)on; Old French burjon, from unattested Vulgar Latin burriōne(m), accusative of unattested burriō, derivative of Late Latin burra “wool, fluff“ (cf. bourrée, bureau), presumably from the down covering certain buds; (verb) Middle English burg(e)onen, borgen, from Anglo-French, Old French, derivative of the noun

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
