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 week I’m again offering a snippet from The Devil’s Mistress. At dinner with the women she met in library school, she knows she will have to tell them about her new lover. It’s not like she can say her new boyfriend works for the devil, now can she?
After we were settled down with our drinks, they all turned to me with raised eyebrows and wanted to know what was new.
“You’re absolutely glowing,” one of them said, “so who’s the new man?”
“Well, you’re right. There is a new man in my life.”
I told them we met when we both happened to be at an accident scene in my neighbourhood–it was basically a pick up, and after it was all sorted out he invited me for a coffee; I’ve been seeing him ever since.
Luckily most people are so invested in their own lives, and with so little imagination, that they didn’t ask anything that I couldn’t answer honestly.
