Hello Talented Sixers and lovely readers. I hope you all had a good week. Six Sentence Sunday is a blog hop with the linky-list at: sixsunday.com/ Each week the participants each post a six sentence snippet of their choosing on their blog. Readers then offer advice, opinions, encouragement etc. Join us. It's a fun way to connect with other writers.
This week, I am picking up right where I left off last week's six. The main character, Marissa, is homeless and struggling with the concept of reality. She is making her way along the north side of the city, hoping to rifle through garbage to find a meal.
"It was a good day; she had a lucky find. Must have been slow sales and they’d tossed out a dozen over-cooked hot dogs. No buns, but food was food.
She wished she had the nerve to go inside and grab a couple packets of mustard; just the thought made her mouth water. But it also made her cringe—thinking about the dark looks she’d get, meant to shame her back out the door."
That's it for now. Thank you for visiting. Please, leave me comment--even if it's just a "hello" to let me know you were here. :-) And have a wonderful week, all!
