Six Sentence Sunday
I’ve had a rough last two weeks so I am ready for some real fun here on the ranch! I’m excited to be a part of Six Sentence Sunday and hope you enjoy these shared bits & pieces of my much loved writing. Click on the Logo above to find many more authors to stalk. If this is your first time on the ranch or your fiftieth, I welcome you and thank you for visiting. We are casual here on the ranch so take a tour, kick your chair back, grab a drink and Li’l Smokie and have fun!
In 2005 I first heard of NaNoWriMo (google it). I decided that since I had some free time and took the Nano challenge. I was writing one of my fave hero types, cowboy, but that story wasn’t the one I wrote. It was started and for Official NaNo you can’t use anything already beyond the planning/plotting stage. I thought long and hard about what to write in the weeks before Nov 1 kick-off and thought I had it ready. Nov 1 rolled in full of writerly excitement that’s hard to ignore and I sat BICHOK (but in chair, hands on keyboard) and my fingers began to fly as words began to flow. I was thrilled but had no clue where in hell the story forming came from. I was confused to say the least because 1) I have never written a real paranormal and 2) it had a veterinarian in it– not my presupposed cowboy! But I gave the two characters their lead and now have 50,000+ words of a paranormal about mind manipulation.
I posted a blip last week introducing Dray Corbeau and Chelcie Miles. Today I’m offering another peak into these two awesome people, picking up immediately following last weeks lines so you might get a glimpse of my charming Frenchman. Last week Dray was laughing at Chelcie, imagining her like a kitten and it ended with her demanding to know what he was laughing at. This is his response to that.
“Rien, Chéri,” he struggled to bring his humor into control. The seductive name made her glance away briefly. He smiled. She understood French, as she’d proven in their previous ‘conversations’ when he’d used his home language. “Nothing at all,” he repeated.
He fought another smile and said, “I have never been so pleasantly attacked in my life.
I hope you like these lines and I think I might continue from here next week. I apologize for any typos, structure or punctuation errors you might spot. This work is completely unedited as the first draft is only half written. As I said last week- one day I’ll get it finished. 🙂
Have a fun, productive and fantastic week! Thanks for reading.
