Final Six Sunday

Hard to believe it, but it’s actually the last official Six Sunday. I want to first thank everyone who consistently read and commented on my sixes over the past year – you’ve made a difference on my writing process. Your support came at a time when my first mentor kept saying “This story will never sell; you need to write a story about a car chase.” I might have given up on it had it not been for your supportive words, so thanks. I’ve enjoyed reading your sixes as well. I understand that Skye Warren is intending to start a new Six Sunday, so I’m crossing my fingers that there’s going to be enough people signing up.

For the last six, we move away from Cammy’s bad childhood memories and into a new chapter. Ryan’s brother Miguel has learned about Ryan’s friendship with Cammy and wants to meet her. Ryan tells Cammy about his brother wanting to meet her, and she agrees to it. Ryan rambles continuously about how his brother is judgemental and rude at times, and Cammy senses that Ryan might fear Miguel. She’s the first to speak.

“You afraid of your brother?” she asked, lifting her head. He fidgeted at the loop of his jeans and blinked rapidly.

“No…of course not,” he replied timidly. Along with his quick temper, Miguel was helping him with his tuition and rent and Ryan knew he would cut him off in an instant.

“Don’t believe ya, stud. Can sense the fear in your voice.”

Regardless of what happens after, I’m going to continue posting snippets of my stories. If Skye Warren’s new SSS does not kick off, then I will post snippets on Saturdays (They will be seven sentences). So follow my blog as well as me on Twitter so you can stay updated. It’s been a pleasure meeting you all and hopefully we can continue to stay connected. Sign up on Skye Warren’s link, if haven’t already done so. I hope you all will keep supporting me on completing my novel.

  1. Thanks for sharing your snippets every Sunday, I’ve enjoyed reading them and I’m looking forward to reading more in the future 🙂

    I like the interplay between Ryan and Cammy here and the exploration of Ryan’s feelings about his older brother. I think you could probably do with out “timidly”, as we can tell that’s how Ryan is feeling by the preceding description of what he’s doing (which is a lovely description, by the way!). I also like that Cammy calls him out about his lie. Good for her!

    • Thanks, I guess I can take out the ‘timidly’ part. I overthink sometimes that I’m not showing his emotions. And yes, Cammy does that…you can’t lie to her and think she won’t notice.

  2. It’s difficult to hide fear in your voice.
    Nice six.
    Stay in touch, Frank.

    I’m on Twttr: @FCEtier

  3. Car chases are overrated:) I’m blown away by the great job you’ve done creating characters with some heavy backgrounds. Kudos 🙂

    • I’m glad you feel the same. This mentor was a published writer who felt we was better than average writers, his genre was mostly literature. These characters are real to me and I will keep writing the story until the end. Thanks for your support!

  4. I’m going to miss your feisty characters Frank, but hope to keep bumping into you and sharing stories, take care.

    • I’m going to keep sharing them, I’m looking into other loops. But follow my blog and you’ll be informed of new snippets. Glad you like my characters, I’ll miss your stories too!

  5. Cammy’s no fool, and I love how Ryan attempts to put a brave face on it! I’m glad you’ll continue, I will too!

  6. This is an absorbing story, Frank. You tell it in a realistic and enjoyable way and I hope you see it through. You don’t need car chases. 😉

    I appreciate your reading my snippets, too. Thank you for your kind comments! Hope to find you on one or more of the new memes. Take care.

    • Thanks, Ryan. It’s a story that isn’t about me personally, but rather of people I’ve met over the years.

    I think she nailed it, Frank. Good to see you on Skye’s list. I’m there, too. Hopefully it will take off. 🙂

    Yes, he is definitely worried about what his brother thinks. Hopefully, he’ll like Cammy. 🙂 I’m following your blog on Google Readers, and following you on twitter, so keep in touch.

    • Thanks for the support. Not to give it away, but his brother doesn’t like her and it follows her around throughout the story.

  9. Nice to hear he has a weakness too. Just found another possible follow on to SSS, this one at http://www.wewriwa.com/ with 8 sentences. Haven’t heard from Skye so I may go with this one.

  10. Great six, Frank! I’m glad you didn’t listen to your first mentor! I’m looking forward to reading more.

    • Thanks, I know if I had, I would’ve given up on writing. Funny enough, he’s a published writer who thinks he knows everything about writing.

  11. Hmm, I do like car chases but YA is a BIG thing these days. I’m sure Cammy and Rhys will do well.

    I’m signed up with Skye. Or there’s a Facebook page where you can post a link to your post. I hope to see more of your work 🙂 ttfn

    • thanks Elin. I’ve signed up with Skye, but I’m going to take a break this weekend, so I’ll likely be sharing the following week. Hope to see you around soon!
