Six Sentence Sunday 4-15-12

Stupid me!  I missed getting my link in for this Sunday’s six 😦

Since I had something already picked out in the spirit of Friday the 13th, I’m posting anyway. I fished around in my pile of shorts for this Sunday’s Six. If you’re new to SSS, writers post six sentences (and six sentences only) from any work-in-progress, something already published, or something that is scheduled to be published. This week, I chose a snippet  from a story about a man and his buddy who dig up a grave on Halloween night. 

Nathaniel blew out a breath and drove his shovel into the earth.  The wind picked up, chasing a cluster of dried leaves into the grave.  It rattled through a dead tree, coaxing a funeral dirge from the branches. The aged wood clicked and moaned with a sound like bone-chimes. Overhead, a tattered string of clouds swept across the moon in a lacey death-veil.  

“Damn, it’s cold,” he muttered. 

Drat, the limitation of the six! Hopefully, it managed to conjure a goosebump or, at least, put you in the setting.  There are many other wonderful writers contributing to Six Sentence Sunday.

And if you liked what you read, I loved to hear your thoughts in a comment. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed my six! 🙂

  1. Great six sentences! Wish there were six more 🙂 I was able to visualize more in those six sentences than in the first two books of a well known series I just finished.


I love comments, so please scribble a thought or two!
