Six Sentence Sunday October 2


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, carrying on with their discussion. But no more stinky stuff 😀

My face felt red and blotchy, my breathing ragged and rough. I was so furious that I didn’t know what I was saying.

“Your job comes first, it always will and it has to be that way. I’m not sure I even believe you about the punishment.”

“Trust me it’s true and it’s not something I want to test. There are rumours about the sweatshops of hell.”

Not looking at me, he started to fidget and his eyes roved around the room—the subject made him very nervous and paranoid.

.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.

    What a cool idea! I wish I’d written something this week now, but was having too much fun on the blog!

  2. I’ll play! Here are six sentences from the inspiriational suspense I am currently writing. Aymee’s Smile is about an artist, an art thief and a missing painting. Alex, the art thief, believes the artist, Brayden, knows where the painting is, and is threatening Brayden’s wife to force him to hand it over.

    “Alex Carmichael spotted Brayden, wearing a light green jacket for the mild Chicago fall weather, already at Michigan Avenue’s bascule bridge watching the sunset shimmer on the Chicago River. He walked up to the boy as though they were best buddies meeting by chance on the bridge. He relished the weight of the gun underneath his own jacket, and was eager to get Aymee’s Smile in his hands and—tie up—the loose ends.

    He chuckled to himself as he approached, at how weak Brayden was, at how easy it had been to force him to give up his uncle’s painting, at how easy the mere offer of money made the whole deal.

    “No money, no Aymee,” Brayden said under his breath when Alex had joined him in looking out over the river. Weakness always showed itself in bravado.”

    ouch! Working a mid-level management job for the devil might be bad but hell’s sweatshops have got to be way worse. I could see why he doesn’t want to antagonize his boss. Fun six!

    Getting “fired” by the devil could take on a whole new meaning. lol Great six.
