Six Sentence Sunday is a blogging thing where published and unpublished authors post six sentences of something they've written every Sunday. This week I've decided to participate. (All part of my ongoing goal of weaseling myself into a writing community of some sort). Anyway, below is a snippet of my recently finished novel Wardroids. The character speaking here is my protagonist Emily Reid, the only women on a third-class mining spaceship. Other characters mentioned: Thirty-two Eighty the wardroid sex slave, and Adam Black the ship's Commander. Though you could probably have figured all that out. Here it is:
I step over an unconscious man as I enter the crowded room and wonder if he passed out there, or if the men saw an opportunity and used him as a human doorstop. I don’t see Thirty-two Eighty at first but then she emerges from under a table. Someone shouts “my turn Honey!” and suddenly she’s pinned against the wall and pretending to enjoy herself. Adam Black isn’t here. Though he’s never had any qualms about using the wardroid, he doesn’t like sharing her in public. The thought of what they do in private makes my stomach queasy.
So there you have it. Does it make you want to read the book? Buy the book? Publish the book? Comment below with your rave reviews of my writing prowess.
