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.

Six Sunday – 12/23/12

It’s Six Sunday again. Thanks for spending part of your Sunday to check out my six, especially as you’re likely busy with all sorts of other things.   This week, I’m sharing a six from my novel where Ryan and Cammy are at the beach. Ryan asks her what the history is between her and her dad, but she won’t answer. He mentions to her talking to asking her friend Raz about it. The six starts off with Ryan making reference to Raz’s comment, so you know who says what. I always value your feedback. So here we go:

“He said I had to get it from you. Somethin’ about the story comin’ from the author,” he added. “And just now, with that little girl on the guy’s shoulders, you looked so sad when you saw them.”
“No I didn’t, had somethin’ in my eye.”
“Cammy, c’mon, don’t play dumb with me. I saw the way you looked at them – I knew you were lyin’ when you said you were fine.”

Visit the Six Sunday link, for the complete list of many authors, like myself. Merry Christmas everybody!
