#SixSunday 43 In Her Image

Not long now till Six Sentence Sunday ends. I’ll be really sorry to see it go. I’m still looking for a regular replacement so if you know of something else similar please give me a heads up. I’m continuing with In Her Image. If you want to read last weeks six go here.

***

“I thought that was you but could not believe my eyes from such a distance.”

Doris, wishing she wore the courtesans comforting battle dress, strove to hide her revulsion. “Lord Ramsay.”

The over-dressed peacock stepped closer to grip her hands in his sweaty globs of flesh. “I still cannot believe my eyes. What has befallen you?”

***

I really appreciate everyone who reads and comments each week, and those visiting my blog for the first time. If you’re new, each Sunday a great bunch of writers publish a short six sentence excerpt from a work in progress or a published story. You will find amazing authors participating in Six Sunday by visiting the host site, Six Sentence Sunday and by searching for #SixSunday via Twitter.

Great imagery in the sweaty globs of flesh. I think that there are plans to continue Six Sunday (at least a rogue offshoot of it anyway) via Skye Warren’s blog 🙂

Ugh. I wouldn’t want his sweaty gobs of flesh anywhere near me. Revolting! Well done, Heather!

So glad to see there’s an off-shoot of SSS. A bunch of us were talking about continuing informally and posting links on Twitter with the SixSunday hashtag.

OK, I’m thoroughly revolted right along with her – terrific description in this six! I signed up with Skye as well – she was kind of asking for a show of hands who might be interested in continuing a version of Sunday excerpts and I LOVE reading them!!! I find a lot of new books this way too 🙂

Overdressed Peacock–I love that description. He sounds utterly repulsive. Terrific six. As for an SSS replacement, I got sent a link once. Skye Warren has created a website, to sign up for an unofficial SSS. Here’s the link: http://www.skyewarren.com/six/
