Six Sentence Sundays

     A squeak drew her eyes back to the rocker on the porch. She jumped when someone rapped on her window. Stephanie turned around and found herself face to face with a boy about ten.
     “You scared me half to death young man.” She was still shivering.
     “That’s a haunted house. I just thought you should know.” He grinned showing a missing tooth in front. Dust wafted off his tee shirt and brown hair hung in his face.

For those new to this, the rules are simple:

1) pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published

2) pick six sentences

3) post ‘em on Sunday

See? Easy. Want to play? See the site for information on how to do just that:

If you have a Twitter account, you can add the hashtag #sixsunday to your tweets when you tweet a link to your Six Sentence Sunday post. If you’re a writer (regardless of published/unpublished status) come join us!

My six sentence Sunday from my published novel, A Stop in the Park, a quote from the main character, Michael about following his dream:
"Maybe dream chasing is like climbing a mountain. You know, finding the trail, stepping onto it. At first, you're energetic and it's easy. Then you trip over a root, face a huge boulder, or a steep incline. So you stand up after the fall, find your way around the boulder, and trudge up the vertical. Eventually, you're on top of the mountain with an expansive view of the world."

Very good. I like it. I didn't know you were participating in the Six Sentence Sunday. I kind of stumbled across that site by mistake and thought I'd try it to the end of the year.

Of course I forget to post to the Linky list most of the time and it is getting very long on there now with more people discovering it. I usually don't get to read many of the posts because of time constraints.

Thanks for stopping and posting.
