Six Sentence Sunday June 10

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.

Back to modern times and a look at my new WIP, another short story, called An Ordinary Couple.


“What do you mean you can’t come to dinner tonight?”

Her sister sounded pissed. Phoebe smiled at the small victory, and hoped Sara hadn’t fainted.

Just because she didn’t date much didn’t mean she was always available  to fill out a dinner party.

“I’ve got a date.”

Dead air greeted her at on the other end of the phone.

  1. “Dead air greeted her at on the other end of the phone.”

    says so much with so little – excellent!

  2. Jessica Subject says:

    Oh, awesome. I’m very intrigued! 🙂

  3. Wildcat's Wife says:

    I love the name Phoebe! What a ring. Ah, sister rivalry. I bet Sara is going to meddle in her sister’s dating habits. This one sounds fun!!

  4. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Excellent beginning! I already have clear pictures of both sisters. And yes, I’d say Ara is not going to let this one go. Great six!

  5. Mae Clair says:

    Great snippet! So much said and revealed in six short sentences. Well done!

  6. Dee Carney says:

    LOL. Love that dead air reaction to her news!

  7. Silver James says:

    This snippet shows so much about the personalities of Phoebe and Sara. Well done! (And the dead air is perfect! LOL)

  8. KE Saxon says:

    LOL! What a great last line! Clearly sis is gobsmacked. Great six and can’t wait to read more!

  9. Jess Schira says:

    Aww, sisterly love! This bears a remarkable resemblance to the way my sisters and I interact with one another, Great job!

  10. Gemma Parkes says:

    Ha, love that last line, we have all been there! Great snippet.

  11. D'Ann Lindun says:

    Love the last line. Nice job!

  12. Carrie-Anne says:

    Sounds like a tense situation!

  13. lol it’s always nice to one-up a sister 🙂

  14. Oh wow! Why is the sister so mean? I want to know about this sibling relationship. Something’s not right, there.

  15. Cate Masters says:

    Great teaser – sounds like these sisters have a complicated relationship!

  16. Karyn Good says:

    Wonderful six! I love stories involving sisters!

  17. Cara Bristol says:

    Wonder what the sister will say when she finds her voice. Intriguing…

  18. Ooooooh, who does she have a date with?? Great six!

  19. Elin Gregory says:

    Brilliant – sibling oneupmanship is always fun to read.

  20. Amy Gregory says:

    Oh that’s perfect! I can just picture the look on her face!! 🙂

  21. Well, you’d think her sister would be happy that she had a date. You can’t always call someone last minute and expect them to respond by running to every little thing. I like this look at some of your other writing.

  22. Zee Monodee says:

    Sounds amazing! I just love your way with words here, and the picture you paint! Great job! 🙂

  23. E. Jamie says:

    (giggles) Great six!

  24. LOL. I guess she really doesn’t date much. 🙂

Aw come on say something....
