So, along with approximately thirty other people, I’ve signed the linky list over at WeWriWa and thus I am posting eight sentences I have written this week and then, tomorrow, I shall blog hop and see what everyone else has been up to and hopefully make some new friends and get some con-crit on my work.
The eight sentences I’m posting are from the start of a short story I’ve been brushing up to send out to some magazines. I’m not going to say any more than that because I want to see what impression everyone else has of what’s going on:
‘You look … umm …’ his eyes travel over every inch of my body, widening comically as he takes in what I’m wearing, ‘err … fat.’
I smile benignly back at him, hiding my amusement that he couldn’t even feign civility long enough to greet me properly.
‘You’re entitled to your own opinion,’ I say, biting the inside of my mouth when his eyebrows shoot up into his hairline, ‘but perhaps your doorstep isn’t the best place to have this conversation.’
His eyes darken as he steps back, jerkily gesturing for me to enter and I quickly step inside.
‘This way,’ he barks, pushing past me and heading for the door at the end of the hall way. ‘You’ll have a coffee.’
From next week I shall post my sentences on a Sunday too but I wanted to do this weeks early in the hopes of encouraging a few more people to join in!
