Six Sentence Sunday, 1/27/13

I haven’t been blogging recently, so what’s the easiest way to get back into posting? Post six sentences I wrote a long time ago, and hope that constitutes a post.

These six are from my first manuscript, Outside In. Alexis goes into her ex-boyfriend’s room at boarding school.

Being in his room transported me back into the world of our relationship. I walked unsteadily over to his bureau and stroked his comb, his tissue box, and his change. I picked up a quarter, rubbed it, and shoved it into my pocket. I stumbled over to his bed and lay down with my head on his pillow. His pillow smelled like him, musty and a little sour, precious anyway. God, I’d loved him.

  1. I’m SO glad you responded so I could see the stupid error in my post title! I NEVER do that. Lisa fail.
    Yes, still querying. I’ve had a lot of rejections of course, but currently I have one full request out and a request for another. I also paid for a reader response letter (kind of like an overall look to see what’s working and what’s not) and am working on big picture stuff before I send it out again.
    Sometimes it can be discouraging but I’m not giving up.
