Six Sentence Sunday May 27


Yea! It’s Sunday and time for Six Sentence Sunday

Every week participants post six sentences from something they are writing – or have written. It’s a lot of fun and really a great way to meet new writers!

And I’ve met some terrific people. Thank you !

Be sure to check out the other great participants and thanks so much for stopping by.

 

This scene takes place Jan 1, 1900 after the celebratory dinner the night before where she met Mr. Thomas. Kathryn decides to spend the day exploring the neighbourhood.

 

 

 

 

Shivering with the coolness, and with the anticipation for her day of exploration, she carefully closed the door behind her and stood on the stoop gazing out to the street.

 

It’s so still.

 

The street normally frenzied with activity– horses’ hooves clumping on the cobbles, pulling carriages of people or produce headed for market, the yelling of cabbies, the shrill voices of venders hawking apples, ribbons, or any number of items people might need or want– was now as quiet as a secluded country lane.

 

Thinking herself alone, Kathryn was startled when she noticed Mr. Thomas approaching the residence.

 

“Miss St. Clair, a pleasure to see you again. I hope you passed a pleasant night.”

    Paints a great picture in my head, good job!

  6. Jessica Subject says:

    Nice descriptions, and I wonder what will happen next since they are alone together. ;)

  7. Gem says:

    I “felt” the quiet. Great writing!

  8. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Great description–you didn’t even need the beautiful pic, but thanks for it anyway! Something tells me Kathryn isn’t going to be exploring alone after all. LOL Great six!

  9. Love that time period! Can’t wait to read more.

  10. Alix Cameron says:

    You put me right into the scene. Great writing.

  11. Silver James says:

    Love the picture of the street and the snippet really showed what that street would be like on the “morning after.” Nice six!

  12. KE Saxon says:

    Love the detail. It really sets the mood. Great six, Sue!!

  13. epbeaumont says:

    It’s the details that make the setting, not only the physical particulars but the rhythm of the sentence structure. So, yes, this is not twenty-first-century, nor late-twentieth. And we’re poised to learn the most important thing: what happens next.

  14. Cate Masters says:

    Sounds like her night’s about to get even more pleasant. :)

  15. Paula Martin says:

    Great description of the normal street, but am wondering why it’s so different today?

  16. Kate Warren says:

    Brilliant description! And what a lovely surprise that Mr. Thomas is there. :)

  17. Mae Clair says:

    As always, you bring the scene to life. I felt like I was standing on the stoop wiht her, taking in the surroundings. Fantastic descriptions. And now we have Mr. Thomas making an appearance at the end of your six. Delightful! I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  18. deecarney says:

    Excellent description of the place! I can see it clearly.

  19. This is coming out great! Lovely pics, as well. :)

  20. Gemma Parkes says:

    Beautiful imagery, l wonder where everyone is?

  21. Love the description of the scene as it usually is, contrasted with how it is today. Great vivid details! :)

  22. I agree with the others, great description of the scene and how it differs not only from our time, but from what she’s used to.

  23. Sue, I love how engrossing these snippets are. You really suck the reader down with the sensory details and descriptions. Not only are we firmly placed in the setting, but we’re caught up in Kathryn’s emotional responses. Excellent.

  24. J.A. Beard says:

    Very evocative of the period.

Aw come on say something....
