Sunday Six for May 6

It's time for Six Sentence Sunday again! Here are the rules: Pick six (6) sentences from anything you like (it can be from a Work in Progress (WiP), something you recently sold, something you hope to sell or even something already under contract and available for purchase – and don’t worry, Six Sentence Sunday is for published AND unpublished writers). Then post them on your blog on Sunday.

Today I'm going to post something brand new I'm working on. It's going to be in a diary format. A recent divorcee, previously mousy and prim, gets out of her marriage and finds a new woman emerging...
I’ll admit, the lights were low. In the club, all the way home in the cab, back at his little apartment over the tatoo shop, the lighting was thankfully dim. Was it naughty of me to keep up the charade? When he saw the photo of my daughter on my phone and asked if it was my sister, what should I have said? I don’t know now and I didn’t know then which is why I kept my mouth shut and the lights dim and half my clothes on while I straddled him in his bed. He soon forgot.
Keep working on it? Or scrap it? Comment below!

  1. I like it. But, trying to think of anything you've written and I've read that I didn't like. Hmmmm......

  2. This might sound harsh but if you are asking the question it is time to give it a little room on the mental shelf and you'll subconsciously iron out the plot, then drive back into it.

    1. It doesn't sound harsh, I did ask the question! But I'm just a little confused... You could tell the plot needed ironing out from six sentences?! I actually wrote it about two weeks ago so it has had some time on the mental shelf. I'm hoping to get back to it today so maybe it will have ironed itself out. Thx for your comment!

  3. Intriguing, I'd like to see where this is going, and whether he's going to find out the truth.

    1. Thanks, Paula! I'm unsure if he's going to be around long enough to find out. Lol. My plan is for her to go on a bit of a tear. ;)

  4. Kind of like a coming of age story - only she's a divorcee. I'm intrigued. It could be very interesting in diary format.
