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 Just pick a six sentence passage from anything you’ve written—published, unpublished, whatever—and post it on your blog on Sunday.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.
This bit follows from last week—Clyota is interrupted from her personal angst by a vidcall, but she can’t exactly call it being “saved by the beep”:
“Cly, what the hell is going on? All the Pressmen in the world are outside our house, yelping for you!” On screen, I could see the outrage on Cristina’s face and little Thomas leaning against his mother, thumb in mouth, big eyes worried.
I thought of all the flagged messages I’d just deleted—talk about missing a clue. “What do they want?”
“Mostly they’re just screaming your name, and I’m sure as hell not asking them for details.”

Uh-oh, this doesn’t sound good!
No . . . No, it really won’t be.
I thought the dynamic between Cly and Cristina was so realistic. It made Cly even more likable and she needed Cristina. This six is great. Glad you chose this snapshot.
Uh-oh is right! Great six, and can’t wait for more. 🙂
Thanks, Jessica—loved the towel moment in your six today!
I really want to know why they want her. great six!
I’m getting scared.
No librarians were harmed in the writing of this story.
Well . . . not permanently harmed.
Well . . . not all of them.
Oh no, this can’t be good! Great description too, I felt like I could see the vidcall and the little boy!
I think your fop-parade was more fun, Angela, but thank you! 😀
Sounds like trouble is ahead. I want to know more!
Thanks, Carrie! I can’t wait to see where your six are going—your descriptions are amazing (and so are the names)
Note to self: Do not delete messages without reading them first.
Unless it’s a message from CuteChik47 asking in the subject line if you want to hook up with a bored MILF—those are probably safe to pitch without opening.
I hope . . .
