Six Sentence Sunday – 11/9/11

Seducing the MythFollowing on directly from last week, these six sentences come from my story, Down by the Pool, which appears in the anthology I just edited and released, Seducing the Myth. More info here.

Also, to comment on this post, it’s the link at the top ^^ – not the bottom. Thanks guys!

And nor did the silence.

Part of me was glad no one was around. Some of my more unusual journalistic investigations had, in the past, caused people to come and ask what I was doing. My responses, as I never saw any reason to lie, inevitably prompted a barrage of further questions. This meant I then had to find a way of extricating myself from the conversation so I could get on with my work. Not being the most forceful of fellows, I always find it difficult.

    I agree, great insight into your MC’s character! Not the kind to say “Leave me alone, I’m busy” then? 🙂

    I really like the voice of this character… too polite and honest to lie, despite knowing how much time that decision will cost due to the questions 🙂
