Six Sentence Sunday May 6

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.


Kathryn is writing home to her family. Perhaps this week she will mention Mr. Thomas…. To be continued next week.

I will catch up later – going to Stars on Ice show —hope my camera works!!!


As she thought about her family, Mr. Thomas came to mind.

She particularly liked his well trimmed beard and moustache.  And his eyes.

If she gazed into those pools of brown long enough she might drown.

He was certainly a distinguished looking gentleman, and when he smiled it cheered her even after a day of teaching.

They called each other by their first names now, although they had met only two weeks earlier.

    Vivid description! Nicely done! Great six!

  2. Jessica Subject says:

    Oh, she’s finally admitting her feelings for him, even if just to herself. Nice six! 🙂

  3. Wildcat's Wife says:

    She’s in such deep thought over this gentleman. I get the feeling she’s not sure how to react or think about the “first name” basis. Scared perhaps?? Good six!

  4. Heather Boyd says:

    First names! They’re as good as betrothed. LOL Nice six. Hope you had a good time at Stars on Ice.

  5. Cara Bristol says:

    “They called each other by their first names now, although they had met only two weeks earlier.”

    Oh I like this. What a way to show the time period, the repressed (suppressed sexuality).

  6. Gem says:

    Awesome six. Your historical details are spot-on!

  7. It’s been great to watch her feelings peek out from beneath her very composed exterior. Just as he warms her, this snippet does the same for the reader. The restrained nature is very well used.

  8. KE Saxon says:

    She’s got it bad for the guy. It comes across so clearly in just those six sentences! Great six and I hope you have a great time today!

  9. Terrific six…I like the timidness that the last line shares.

  10. Aw. Love your six! So sweet! 🙂 And, I’m glad that we get to know what she thinks of him.

  11. Loved this line, “If she gazed into those pools of brown long enough she might drown.”

  12. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Perfect picture for Kathryn. Love how she’s thinking about his dark eyes. And the fact hat they call each other by their first names is very telling. They both want this to go somewhere. And I’m with Kathryn–love a man with facial hair! Fantastic six.

  13. Gemma Parkes says:

    I love your posts, and the little pictures that match so well!

  14. Mae Clair says:

    The man has definitely made an impression on her. And who can blame her? I like how they’ve moved to first name territory. This is sweet and romantic.

  15. Lindsay says:

    Love how you describe his eyes and her reaction to them

  16. Kate Warren says:

    First names after so short a time? Scandalous! LOL Lovely six!

  17. Lindsay says:

    Forgot. Enjoy Stars on Ice

  18. Zee Monodee says:

    The closeness between them is growing… 🙂

  19. Cate Masters says:

    Love that she’s imagining coming home to him after a day of teaching. Very telling.

  20. sueroebuck says:

    Historical one! Very good way of showing she’s a teacher. I like the photo – it suits it perfectly.

  21. Silver James says:

    Oooh. First name basis after only two weeks? Scandalous! 😉 Great way to remind the reader of his description.

  22. J.C. Martin says:

    She is certainly smitten! 🙂

  23. Uses first names… That’s a big step in those days! Oh my, she’s losing her heart and doesn’t even know it. 🙂

  24. Carrie-Anne says:

    I love the descriptions and how she’s slowly admitting she likes him.
