#SixSentenceSunday - Week 4

Once again, work has kept me very busy but I'm still trying to keep my head in the game, aided by the #SixSentenceSunday project/blogroll and Cara Michael's #WIP500.

I completely forgot to post last week for #SixSentenceSunday but I didn't this week! :) Woo! (added note: this was supposed to post this morning but I wasn't paying attention to the date when I scheduled the post and had it set up for tomorrow. Sigh.)

Without further delay, I bring you my six sentences from Guardians.

All the friendliness didn’t do a thing to dispel the anxiety that was coursing through Alana. She tried to fight the urge to look behind her. David seemed to pick up on her tension, looked at her with concern, and kept any further conversations with people to a minimum.

They turned the corner of the block towards town hall and as Alana looked up, she stopped in shock. She was completely unprepared for the sudden assault of images in her mind. What was happening?

#SixSentenceSunday - Week 3

I'm really starting to like the #SixSentenceSunday project/blogroll. It is helping me keep my WIP on my mind even while my day job sucks the life out of me. I joke ... I enjoy my job usually but it takes up a lot of my time.

Here's my next six from Guardians

“That’s quite an unusual necklace you have, Alana. I’ve only seen one other like it.”

“Oh, this?” Alana touched the pendant, running a finger along the spiral. “My grandmother gave this to me when I turned thirteen. I always wear it, and now I feel like I have a part of her with me at all times. She had one just like it, too.”

So last week, she was hearing noises and voices in her head. Is there any correlation with her pendant or is it just an ordinary piece of jewelry?

#SixSentenceSunday - Week 2

Happy Easter!

So I haven't really had much time to work on my manuscript this week, but here's another six sentences from Guardians.

While she was in the checkout aisle, noise in the store seemed to increase. Instead of the usual low murmur of background music and people talking, it became louder and angrier. Alana looked around with concern, thinking that a fight was about to break out, yet when she turned there was nothing.

Still, the loud whispers persisted. Alana kept looking around, trying to find the source of the noise. The cashier looked at her like she was crazy.

#SixSentenceSunday - Jumping In

I've seen hashtags about this on Twitter for awhile and finally decided to jump in. Networking never hurt anyone. :P

Aaaand, here are my sentences from my #WIP500 project, Guardians.

Alana turned and walked over to the mantle before placing some pictures along the narrow ledge. One included a picture of Alana and Evelyn from her college graduation. Several more were of Evelyn and Robert with Alana as she grew up. What was clearly obvious in those pictures was how much her grandparents loved her and each another.

She had just opened up a second box when a man’s voice startled her.

“Hello? Somebody here?”
