Six Sentence Sunday – 22/1/12

Susie White and the Right Hand ManMore from fairy tale retelling Susie White and the Right Hand Man.

She’d smiled thinly and without any real emotion. “Charmed, I’m sure, Susan.” She’d shaken my hand gingerly, as though she was afraid she’d catch something. I’d half expected her to wipe her hand on her clothes afterwards.

“Oh please, call me Susie.” I’d said, ignoring her odd behaviour.

    Oh, I’m not a fan of this woman Susie is meeting, but I love how she ignores her attitude. Great six! 🙂

    Limp handshakes are the worst, but this is a great six!

    Nice tension. The brush off and then Susie ignoring it.

    This stepmother is a real charmer! I love how you’re allowing us to see the nemesis through the eyes of the heroine. Great six! I’m so glad I have this on my kindle–now just to get some time to read!

    Don’t like the sound of this woman Susie’s met. A wee bit too holier-than-thou for my palate. Great six and descriptions, though!

    This really makes me want to know more about the situation and the characters. Doesn’t sound like a pleasant meeting. Nice six!

    So, who is this cold woman? Sounds like Susie is in for a couple of unpleasant minutes. 🙁
