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 Just pick a six sentence passage from anything you’ve written—published, unpublished, whatever—and post it on your blog on Sunday.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.
When last we left our heroine:
“Door,” I said, getting to my feet and retying my robe, looking at the black smears my hands left on the sash, “call the—”
“Do not,” said a voice, “call the Police.”
I jerked my head around and stared at the little Pressman, the one Diane had pulled away, the same one I’d noticed in the mob on my lawn, standing by the still open Doorway. “Get the hell out of my house,” I said.
“Don’t be stupid,” he said. “There isn’t time.”

Such a cliffhanger! What’s going to happen? Lovin’ this! 🙂
Sorry—it’s tough not to leave cliffhangers with only six sentences! 🙂
OOh! The Pressman! 🙂
Yep. I’ll admit, he’s one of my favorite characters, ever, even if his diction drove me nuts . . .
Great choice in snippet, Sarah. A great introduction to his character. Can’t wait to see which one you pick next. And I know this is not a moment for swooning, but since I like him so much…*swoon*
Swoon away, Lisa—I’ll join you. 🙂
Well, any snippet that contains the words, “Do not call the police” is going to be a favorite of mine.
But it didn’t mention August . . . 😉
You’re right. Second favorite, then.
And that’s what I get for opening my big mouth . . .
Such a great/pivotal scene!
Thanks, Angela. Hope his manner of speaking didn’t drive younuts!
Great six – more please!
Thanks, Paula . . More of this scene next week, I think . . .
Wow! Intriguing six! Great way to leave it so I want to read more. 🙂
Thank you Lorraine — I hope everyone thinks the same! 🙂
Yikes! Will she go with him or stay? Great opportunity with character arcs and turning point in plot.
I think you’re right, Carrie — hey, everyone! My novel has a turning point!
I was just telling my kids how much I hate it when someone calls me stupid. In fact, it’s been known to make my blood boil.
Yeah—and he’s not earning any points with her just by being what he is. . .
