Six Sentence Sunday 4/8/12

Here’s six sentences from a new novel I’m drafting. In a school play, Rachael is playing the part of Elizabeth, a timid bullied girl, and is trying on the character during the normal school day.

“She focused on Elizabeth and in a moment she was Elizabeth. Elizabeth, not Rachael, looked up words in the dictionary. Elizabeth glanced at the teacher every so often to make sure that he wasn’t looking at her, that she wasn’t going to get in trouble for anything. She also didn’t work as quickly as Rachael had. Elizabeth double- and triple-checked the definitions before she wrote them. Even Elizabeth’s handwriting was different; Rachael’s was loose and straight up and down, Elizabeth’s slanted and narrowed.”

    • Hi! I actually have a whole draft, from NaNoWriMo two years ago. I love my idea but the second half is really, really bad! 🙂 Looking forward to working on it, though. It’s the one on Scrib that I’ve posted as “Marianna.”
