Six Sentence Sunday September 25

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!

From the Devil’s Mistress, continuing with their first fight.

“You’re just like all the other guys I’ve ever dated. I don’t know what I’m doing with you; I should leave and I wish I never saw that accident scene.”

He looked at me, “I know you don’t mean what you’re saying.”

“You don’t mean it that you would leave me.”

“Your insincerity smells like smoke from a match that has just gone out, and gives you away. And that smell, mixed with the rotten egg smell, is worse than brimstone.”

Boy am I glad I can’t smell myself– yuk!


The Devil’s Mistress, a paranormal romance, is about an unlucky in love woman and a man who works in mid-management for the Devil. He’s the one who dispatches souls to his boss, Mr. D. She vows to restore her lover’s humanity and not lose him in the process. The story is told entirely from her point of view.

  5. LMAO “glad i can’t smell myself”! Nice snippet with lots of sense play, and the characterization is fab!

  6. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Boy, didn’t realize scent could be as tell-tale as mind-reading! Fantastic six!

  7. Love the last line! Imagine smelling of rotten eggs and burnt matchsticks!

  8. She has her work cut out for her! But can she get past the smell? Nice!

  9. Liz Crowe says:

    well done! I can smell it already….

  13. Jennifer Lowery~Writer says:

    That is the most descriptive sense of smell I’ve ever read! Great six!

  14. Sue says:

    thank you very much

  15. Victoria Adams says:

    Fantastic smelly description – you can tell my everyone’s comments – they all got the same “yuck” from what you wrote. Greta job.

  16. It must burn her butt that he can smell her emotions. Great concept and six!

  17. Eleri Stone says:

    Love that he can describe the smell of insincerity. It would be impossible to hide anything from him, huh?

  18. Lynne Murray says:

    Tough to fight with someone who can smell emotions! But where to go from here? Suspenseful six!

  19. Nice! fighting with him is like fighting with a mind reader! Poor human women have no chance!

  20. Eccentricity says:

    Interesting to know that’s what insincerity would smell like. 🙂

    On an off note, I always like matches in the bathroom–lighting a match works better than any air freshener on the market to clear smells.

  21. …definitely glad I can’t smell that…

    I found the first paragraph a little confusing… is she saying she should leave because he’s like all the guys she’s dated in the past, or is she saying she should leave because of the accident?

  22. That was fun, thanks for sharing. Is the rotten egg smell metaphorical or literal?

  23. bluerose says:

    ha! his gift of smell must really “stink” in his line of work! pardon the pun 😉

Aw come on say something....
