Six Sentence Sunday is a bloghop--and one of the friendliest. Participants post six sentences of their writing, then the fun begins. Readers hop from blog to blog, sharing opinions, critiques and encouragement. We know what a solitary pursuit writing can be--and Six Sentence Sunday is a great way to meet other writers, and take a break from our solitude. Complete rules and a sign up form are at the site here.
Returning to my WIP, ATNS. A snippet from a dream sequence. Cuylrh has taken Marissa to a place he's never shared with a woman. A hilltop on a world near the outer rim of the night sky. She fell asleep beside him after they watched the sunset. And now he can't sleep. His conscience is tearing him apart. He has sinned in the eyes of his Giver, broken a rule of his faith, and possibly committed treason by taking the Earth woman. He has to make a decision, and he and Marissa could pay dearly if he follows his heart.
“Roadmaps. That’s what shone above Cuylrh. But they were more than that. A connection to the Giver, a constant reminder that there's more to this existence than one lifetime.
Somewhere, out among the vastness of that road-map of stars, likely beyond any familiar part of it, Rissa’s world must be turning. Fate had brought her to him. And in his heart of hearts, he knew there was no sin in what he’d done. It would have been a sin if he’d left her behind. He sighed. Others would see it differently."
Let me have it. :-) Comments, suggestions, criticisms? All much appreciated.
