Six Sentence Sunday April 22

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.



People have asked how Kathryn really feels about Mr. Thomas. Here’s a peek as she prepares to write home.

Kathryn squirmed on the desk chair as she debated what to write her mother at home in Canada.

Everything in the room appeared scaled down, so unlike her large childhood bedchamber that faced the back gardens; the flowers perfuming the room all spring and summer, the birds chirping and the white curtains starched to a stiffness that only a substantial breeze would stir.

On the left sat her ink well, and in front of her the pretty rose patterned stationary. Blank. 

She wrote 17 January, 1900. And what shall I say?

    You tease! LOL Not a word about her feelings for him. I guess I just have to come back next week. 😉 Nice six!

  4. Honey says:

    That was great! I loved the descriptions, like the smell of the flowers and the starched curtains. Well done.

  5. Gem says:

    Lovely description of the room. Now, what’s she going to tell her mother? 🙂

  6. Mae Clair says:

    Lovely. Your descriptions are vivid and put me into the moment with her. Can’t wait to see what she writes!

  7. She was definitely stalling there wasn’t she (noticing the room, etc)? can’t wait to see what she writes 😉

  8. KE Saxon says:

    Excellent description, really put me “in the moment”…can’t wait to find out if she says a word about Mr. Thomas, though (or if she chickens out, LOL!)

  9. Zee Monodee says:

    Love this glimpse into her world and childhood. You keep me intrigued with this story 🙂

  10. Cara Bristol says:

    Oh that blank sheet of paper! It doesn’t get any easier a hundred years in the the future when you stare at the blank computer screen. Like the description — shows how preoccupied she is.

  11. Silver James says:

    Your description puts the reader right in the middle of the scene and then narrows the focus so they are looking over her shoulder. Well done!

  12. Wonder what she’ll say? 🙂

  13. Cate Masters says:

    Wonderful setting descriptions. I could picture it so clearly.

  14. Alix Cameron says:

    The description is perfect. Great six.

  15. Dee Carney says:

    Great description. Nice six!

  16. Carrie-Anne says:

    I love the descriptions of the scene. Has it really been that long since people still wrote letters?

  17. Cherie Marks says:

    It’s probably less about what she actually writes as opposed to the parts she leaves out. Great six!

  18. What a tease! I’m curious to know more about her… and what she thinks about him. 🙂

  19. Gemma Parkes says:

    Lovely description, l can just see her looking around and trying to think of what to write!

  20. Her home sounds lovely. Can’t wait to read more of this book!

  21. Vivien Dean says:

    What a lovely sense of place! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  22. Paula Martin says:

    Lovely description as she wonders what she’s going to write. Maybe she’ll just mention him in passing, as it were?

  23. epbeaumont says:

    The blank page… a universal across the ages. Yes. We’ve all known this moment.
