The past three Six Sunday posts have been from a shelved WIP, and the response has been so wonderful, I may have to un-shelve that chapter and start making something of it. But not yet.
This week’s post is an introduction to Sam and Delilah from my primary WIP “Virgo.” I don’t exactly know where it’s going to fit in yet, but I do intend to use it somewhere in the first draft. Next week, I’m planning to post part of the first chapter and I hope to stay with that scene for a while.
Thank you, everyone, for commenting! And please check out other Six Sentence Sunday blogs.
(And my sincerest apologize for forgetting how to count to six. My Kindergarten teacher would be so ashamed of me. The below excerpt has seven sentences.)
Sam watched Delilah’s hands hover over the vinyl. Turning at thirty-three revolutions per minute, it whispered “hush” as it kissed her skin here and there. She couldn’t hear it. Her headphones canceled noise; nothing short of a wrecking ball coming through the wall could get between her and the beat on which she was focused. Seeing them on her ears took him back a few years, to a night when the tick-tock of a clock could chase away her demons in a minute or so. Even a clicking pen would do in a pinch. Now to get her to a happy place, she needed turntables, a mixer, and time enough to obliterate every thought she ever had…three things they could no longer take for granted.
