Six Sentence Sunday: Full Metal Librarian LIX (Job Security)

It’s the last Six Sentence Sunday, and I want to thank everyone who has stopped by to read or comment on what has turned out to be 366 of mine.

Because of your support and encouragement—and beta comments from those of you brave enough to read the whole thing—I’ve been taking a long look at that old drawer novel of mine and have decided to give it a thorough edit and see if I can make it agent-worthy.

Who knows?

I’m not sure what I’ll be putting in this space, if anything, but I hope some of you might drop in once in a while for old-time’s sake?


One last snark for the road. . . .



“If someone does break in here, what would you do?”  I wasn’t about to risk a key witness—or a friend.

Reynard’s shoulders lifted, fell.  “Members of the Press are generally held to observing and reporting news, not directly generating it—but self-defense is an acceptable loophole.”

“What do you call bailing me out of jail?” I asked.

“Job security.”

  1. I love Pressman! And YES! Please get this submission ready! It totally deserves to be in print. Let me know if you want me to help you with a revised version. I’ve learned a lot since I saw it last and would love to give it another go…

  2. You should definitely look back over it. It’s a world and a story that others should have to possibility to experience. Great snippet to leave off with. Reynard has the best one-liners around.

  3. Love it! I’m so glad you’ve pulled it out of the drawer. Following you on twitter now, and going to follow your blog. Be sure to keep in touch! 🙂

    • You’re WordPress, too, so when you’re signed in and looking at my blog, there should be a little cross-in-circle thingie on the top bar at the left. Click that and my posts will appear in your WordPress reader. It worked when I followed yours! 😀

      I may sign with the Warriors, but even if I don’t, I’ll lurk around so I don’t miss your next passage.

  4. Oh man! Great line. My hero used it to, but the circumstances were rather different.

    I’m going to keep posting with Skye Warren’s list and/or the Weekend Writing Warriors. Hope to see you around.

    And I’ll be dropping by here as well, so you’d better have something to post at least once in a while, young lady! 😉
