Reality

Six Sentence Sunday is:

  • You pick six (6) sentences from anything you’ve written–a work in progress (wip), something under submission, something sold; something new, something old.
  • You sign up at the Six Sunday website Tuesday starting at 6PM EST.
  • You post it on Sunday (along with posting a link of suxisunday.com)! Such as I have below.
  • And then you enjoy.

And today just happens to be one of those wonderful Sundays. I’m sharing snippets from my wip Countdown, a tale about a woman trying to save her floating city from being decomissioned, or rather dropped out of the air. The person calling for the decomissioning? The king.

Last week, Zoe’s new acquaintance Grey Richter gave her a little advice: to keep quiet about her opinion of the king and his entertainment, as the cost for such speech is pricey and could very well cost her life. His cautionary tale came with a real-life example as a man was dragged away by the guards. Here is part of Zoe’s response.

“Where are they taking him?” Zoe whispered, unable to force herself to speak louder as one of the guard’s heads swiveled toward her, the black eye pieces empty of expression.

“Not far. There’s a jail beneath the palace. He won’t stay there long, though. Maybe till morning.”

“And then, they’ll let him go?”

“And then, they’ll kill him,” Grey corrected.

Next week, I’m not quite sure what I’ll share. I think I’ll jump to an action scene later in the book. But in the mean time you should head over to sixsunday.com to catch up on the great work there. A little bit of something for everyone.

    1. Well, she would if he was reasonable. But she’s taking a less direct approach in finding the codes to stop the decommissioning: a task that’s just about as hard as getting the king to change his mind.

    1. Wow, I really appreciate that, Silver. I’m so glad you enjoyed and thank you for such great compliments. Thank you for stopping by and looking forward to hearing what else you think!
