Six Sentence Sunday


Osiyo~

Once more! I have been enjoying 6 Sentence Sunday for about two months now and haven’t run out of lines to share. That’s a great thing people. LOL Whether it’s your first time here or your fiftieth, welcome! I’m doing another 6 from Healing Whispers, my horse whisperer story I’ll be resubmitting once I’ve had a chance to revise it some later this year. I hope you enjoy my sample this week when I’m sharing a peek of why Tanner has his work cut out for him.

Men were—men—as far as she was concerned. They were good workers; she even had male friends, but not in the respect women typically thought of men. She knew from experience that if you gave them an inch, they invariably tried to take the whole shebang—and personally, she didn’t have a shebang left to offer. Not when her own uncle and cousin were after her horse.

They were trying to take her ranch from her a piece at a time since she wouldn’t lie down and give up the fight, sticking their fingers in whenever they saw an opening. So she made sure not to leave any openings. 

I love this woman! Thanks for coming by and I hope you’ll hop over to check out some of the other participating authors by clicking on the logo at the top of this post.

    • Being from the south, I have slang galore so that must mean I’m an emotion-ridden author! 😆 I’m so glad my writing can help someone else. That’s important to me and that it helps someone with a Bang Out book like you- well that’s just icing on the cake. Thanks A.Y.!

  5. The “she didn’t have a shebang left…” is a terrific phrase! Slang tossed in now and then can elicit an explosion of emotions.
