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!
Last week I mentioned my muse’s new story line.
The stories start in the 50s. Six teens, seemingly very different, meet weekly and keep in touch with each other their entire lives. They must have something in common.
This week we meet Joey, who is my personal favourite of the group, so far. This clip takes place away from the group. Each character starts with a line or two of a glimpse into their home life as they leave to go out to meet with friends
As he was leaving the house to meet his friends at the bar, he glanced at his parents; his father scrawled and passed out on the recliner, his mother flopped on the couch, her hand hanging off the edge, drool spotting her chin, unconscious.
“Watch my beer. I’ll be right back,” Joey told the bartender.
His thin frame ran through the dark bar and he sped out the front door.
“Hey Sue, here’s the quarter I owe you!”
He rolled the coin down the pavement to land at her feet not noticing the girl’s shocked look.
