Six Sentence Sunday: Full Metal Librarian VIII (Serpent’s Tooth)

Six Sentence Sunday is open to all writers.  Just pick a six  sentence passage from anything you’ve written—published, unpublished, whatever—and post it on your blog on Sunday.  

Registration for the upcoming Sunday list opens the previous Tuesday evening at 5pm CST.  More information is here.

Check out all the talent!


From the drawer novel, another continuation—I swear there’s a plot in here, somewhere:

The explosion shuddered the glasscrete and rattled the doors, but that was all.

“You okay?” I asked the boy, who had gone silent, his blue eyes open wide.

“Maaaa-maaa!” he screamed. “Maaaa-maaa!”

A woman ran up, yanking a sullen older child along by one arm.  Close behind her was Frieda, the Children’s Supervisor, who looked exactly like Mrs. Santa Claus, right down to the jolly pink cheeks and the white hair braided into a bun—but her usual cheerful smile was absent, which meant she was seriously ticked.

    • Thanks, Angela!

      I just received a lot of notes about this from a friend. I’m still not entirely sure it’s worth the effort to do the extensive rewrites it needs, but maybe . . .

Talk to me!
