It’s Sunday, and you guessed it, that means another Six Sentence Sunday, which 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 I’m sharing snippets from a wip called Countdown, in which Zoe is doing everything she can to save her floating city from being “decommissioned,” or dropped from the sky. It’s written mostly from Zoe’s POV, but we switch to her brother Lawson sometimes to see the battle at home.
Last week Zoe bypassed chains and leather straps for a glowing green light in a secret room. Gotta love her unhealthy lack of fear and self-preservation. ;)
The room was much bigger than what she had anticipated, unfolding from the hallways sideways; it wasn’t very deep, but it was long. It was filled with elongated steel tables, which were covered in every manner of wires, tubes, beakers and burners. The greenish glow that had led her to the room was coming from one glass apparatus in particular; it was in the center of the room and somehow was the only light source. The nearly transparent liquid boiled gently, and was the only thing making noise in the room. Zoe circled it curiously, disturbed by the fact that the earthy smell it gave off was pleasing.
Though, it was boiling there was no heat source visible.
Let’s hope the mysterious boiling liquid is the only thing she finds. We’ll see what else pops up. Until then: some other snippets to brighten your Sunday. There is a lot to enjoy.
Enjoy your week. Happy Sunday. And see ya next time.
