Six Sentence Sunday #7


Greetings, Kittens!

Thank you all for the kind comments last week! I'm feeling a bit better, but over-did it in the heat Saturday, probably like many of us. So glad to see you again this week, and your comments are always appreciated. Today I'm going back to A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART since I'll be entering edits soon and it's on my mind. The following is just a few paragraphs after the First and Second offerings.

Enjoy.

Kryssa needed something to calm her nerves before she forgot herself and a simple orientation became a full blown situation. A quick rooting through the fridge produced a large tub of raw vegetables. Almost before the top was fully off, several baby carrots disappeared into her mouth.

“Ooo, you eat vegetables too?”

Kryssa crunched louder and groaned, “We’re omnivores, you idiot.” The last two words came out a mumbled wreck that bought her a little extra time for decorum.

Great six, it does a really good job of showing her stress level.

And can I just add - Jared Padalecki in a towel is killing me. Good grief he's ripped. :)

I love those mood icons! You don't get better than Jared in a towel at the bottom of the post! *grin*

I love the "we're omnivores, you idiot." Sets the tone and makes her seem very real. Great six. :)

Re: Gem on crunching dragons
Thank you so much for saying that. She felt very real and it's great to know that comes across in just this bit of the first chapter.

Kryssa is awesome! By far she cracks me up more than any other character I've written. :)

Love the "we're omnivores" line -- guess so, but the fridge and baby carrots are a funny touch!

I just love the idea of a weredragon emotional eating and using vegetables. It just cracks me up!

Yay! Being hooked was the goal. I'm going to stick with it for a bit and I'll post a longer excerpt and link to in the weeks ahead. :)
