I’ve really enjoyed participating in Six Sentence Sunday. If you’ve never heard of it, I suggest you click on the link and be sure to sample some of the other participants as well. You won’t be disappointed.
Over the last four weeks, I’ve shared snippets of my current work-in-progress titled Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings. I’ve gone back and forth quite a bit trying to decide whether I should continue with this or switch gears for a couple of weeks and test the waters with something new.
I have another project that I’m pretty excited about, although it’s still in the early stages. As a matter of fact, it doesn’t even have a title. At this point, I know my characters and I have a hazy idea of the general plot and even still, I have high hopes that this will expand into a three-book series. Well, we shall see about that, won’t we?
Anyway, enough of my rambling on about it. Let’s get to the good stuff, shall we? Without further ado, I present to you my “six”, a brief exchange between my two main characters (Sarah and Nathanial) about the true nature of their relationship…
When she turned back to face him, he was seated in the chair and looking out at the darkened landscape as though he’d been that way the entire time. The slight sting of loss resonated deep inside.
“We were enemies,” she said plainly. The words weren’t meant to hurt or challenge. She meant no recourse, only to state the simple fact out loud for her own ears to sample and taste.
“We still are,” he said getting up and moving from the room.
I hope I’ve tempted you enough to return next week for more. Until then…

Tempting indeed!! Your writing flow is so natural. I love it! And, well, I just need more of this!! LOL Great 6!
Thanks, L.J.! Much appreciated. That means a lot to me that you enjoy my writing. 🙂
Something new, I like that. And it has such underlying friction and a sense of sadness. Can’t wait to see where this is headed. You have me intrigued!
Thanks, Mae! Ah yes, there is quite a story behind these two and I can’t wait to dive into it. I’m really excited about this one, which is why I couldn’t wait to share a snippet from the little bit I’ve written. I’m glad I have you intrigued. 🙂
It does sound like something interesting is about to happen.
You’ve tempted me enough. I’ll be back next Sunday.
A lot of tension built up with that last line. I gotta know what the trauma is in their life … I hope you’ll share more. Great writing.
this sounds so cool!
