Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might feel inclined to offer.
This six comes from my in process novel, Sins of Our Mothers (ha!) in which the heroine is taking a test she desperately wants to fail:
Two lines made her decisions more immediate; one line gave her time to evaluate options.
How could it have happened?
She ran through her sexual encounters and could remember none that had been near misses…at least at the time. Two lines meant one of them hadn’t been a miss but a strike. One line meant she had more chances. Two lines meant her old life was officially dead, her future wounded and with a permanent limp.
Uh-oh…is she or isn’t she?
Let’s take a quick poll:
Be sure to check out the host site, Six Sentence Sunday, for links to more tantalizing snippets from some very talented writers.
I had to vote hanging…
Never had that happen, but I’ll bet it would be beyond frustrating, especially if you were taking the test on the sly. Thanks for dropping by!
Love it..very intriging six…I’m dying to know!
Thanks for visiting, Christine. Alas I cannot say one way or t’other without spoiling. Mean, I know.
Oh, dear … O_O
Yes, indeedy, oh dear is right. THanks for visiting.
Teasing snippet! Nicely done!
Thanks, Dee! 🙂
I’m dying to know the result!
Hmmm…so is she! heh-heh. Thanks for stopping by, Paula.
Awesome six. Not only was it an interesting take on a situation many women have found themselves in, you’re fluid writing style really shines.
THank you, Jess. THat’s very nice of you to say. 😀
I enjoyed the repetition … shows her circling thoughts and worries as she waits for the results. Nice six!
Thank you, Lorraine! 🙂
Not being familiar with pregnancy tests, I was trying to make it lines on her hand, like life lines. A pregnancy test–it makes a lot more sense.
Thanks for visiting and commenting, Sueann! 🙂
Nice suspense, Claire! Going by the title, I’d say she is!
Heh-heh, can’t fool you can I, Tonya! 😉
Two lines will give her new perspective and a new role which she might learn to like?
That’s one way of looking at it. 😉
Wow, you really captured the feeling of dread and anticipation. Nice job.
Love the cover too, it’s different than anything I’ve seen. This is a winner for sure.
I like your use of repetition here to underscore this turning point in her life, well done!
