The idea is pretty simple really: Pick six (6) sentences from anything you like (it can be from a Work in Progress (WiP), something you recently sold, something you hope to sell or even something already under contract and available for purchase – and don’t worry, Six Sentence Sunday is for published AND unpublished writers). Then post them on your blog on Sunday. That’s all there is to it! (for the full rules/ FAQ see here.)
For today's 6 Sentence Sunday, I'm sharing lines from my current WiP, Camp NaNoWriMo paranormal romance, Cupid.
"Celestea and the rest of the Cupids spread love, passion, and devotion, Abraxas is all about lust, passing infatuations, and dark obsessions.""Okay, and when you say I'll belong to him, you mean …""You will become part of his collection."
The word sparked a memory in my mind. My throat felt suddenly dry, and my chest tight. I thought I'd imagined him.
I hope you enjoyed my six sentences, and please check out the other participants here.
I'm still deciding if I'm going to take part every week, but it's highly likely.
In some unrelated 6 Sentence Sunday news, below the cut are a few more writing related bits I wanted to share.
First of all, I was tagged by the wonderful Christine Rains in the "Look" meme. I've already taken part once, when Victoria Smith tagged me. You can see my paragraph containing the word "look" over on FaceBook (feel free to friend me there if you haven't already.)
I was recently published on inkPageant, with the piece I wrote when I had a guest spot on Arlee Bird's Tossing It Out, as part of his Highjack This Blog event. You can find my inkPageant profile here. I've noticed a few others around the blogsphere have published things on InkPageant, I'd love to read them, so please link me to them in the comments or point me in the right direction.
Finally, can I remind everyone about my Amazon £15 voucher giveaway. It ends this Wednesday (29th) and I'm hate for one of you wonderful people to miss out. You're all so great with your endless support and encouragement that I want to show my appreciation and give something back. Head on over there to enter.
As you might have noticed from last night's post, I "won" Camp NaNoWriMo yesterday, when I reached 51, 382. Thanks to everyone for the congratulatory comments. I am still continuing with Cupid, but from now on I'll update once a week with my progress, so you don't all get sick of me blogging every day. (Plus I don't want to be double posting when GUTGAA starts. If you haven't signed up already, you really should. It's looking to be a great fest, with plenty of opportunities to pitch, meet CPs and make writerly connections. Plus there's gonna be prizes, and who doesn't love prizes, right?!)
Okay, this post is turning out way longer than intended, so I'll leave it here, with a silly .gif of my NaNo journey.
I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their Sunday, and that the new weeks gets off to an excellent start!
