six sentence sunday march 13


It’s time again 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 a great way to meet new writers! 

 Be sure to check out the other great participants, and thanks so much for stopping by!
The comments were getting kinda over heated here and I feared that Chester was turning people off.

 The objective of my characters – and there are two – Chester and his wife Priscilla – is their interaction. They are the Perfect Couple. Their personalities come out bit by bit in the story line. So here is a snippet of the Perfect Couple to provide background for the future.


If you met Chester and his wife Priscilla, you would no doubt think they the perfect couple.
They are each renowned in their chosen professions; he as a lawyer, she as a psychiatrist.
Their home, unburdened by children, is perfectly coordinated, though a bit pristine and scrupulously tidy.
They both work out regularly and for a couple in their 40s, are in good shape.
You would find her a pleasant, quiet woman but without too much of a sense of humour, while his banter can be cutting and cruel at times, though his face always wears a smile.

 Looks deceive, behaviour illuminates; their true nature is not discernible through casual observation

    Love the description, very crisp and clean home. Nice six.

  2. Have a better handle on Chester now…but still won’t be inviting him (or his humorless wife) to any parties!

  3. Yes, now I have a better understanding of them both.

  4. J.C. Martin says:

    I particularly liked the last line: “looks deceive, behaviour illuminates”. Great 6.

  5. Lindsay says:

    They sound so perfect that one or both could be serial killers.

  6. Lisa Fox says:

    Very intriguing and ominous!

  7. It’s nice to take a step back and see Chester from a new angle. Great six.

  8. Lauri J Owen says:

    Very descriptive! And this description makes them much more real to me.

  9. It’s hard to love perfect people, but then no one really is. “Looks deceive”. I bet! Good hook.
    Thanks for sharing.

    descriptive. definitely psychopath material

  11. Lisa Kumar says:

    I’ve known sociopaths from when I worked as a crisis worker. Nice description of Chester and his wife.

  12. bluerose says:

    ahh… always be suspicious of people who appear perfect ;). looking forward to reading more about what makes them tick.

  13. I just realized missed this one last week. wordpress did not send me a notification 😦

  14. While Chester is certainly not very likable, he is so complex he is intriguing. He might take shape into a terrifically twisted antagonist.

      Yes chester is complex as is his wife – but six sentences by six sentences, it does not work – their stories will be told – thank you very much for your insightful comments
