After a few months of nagging, I finally got my friend Kelly Seguin to enter Six Sentence Sunday. This required her to create a blog. I think it looks pretty nice. She’s sharing a kick-ass six from her novel Ashes, Ashes, so please check her out and say hi.
Last week, Delilah threw off her hoodie, showed us her fashion sense, and put on glasses she doesn’t need to wear. There’s one minute to go until Delilah does…whatever she’s got planned.
At 11:13, while Delilah’s fingers danced on her laptop, Adam transitioned from electro into a sultry layering of R&B rhythms, harmony, and phrasing. Sam’s racing pulse tripped when a tick of a metronome rose above Adam’s bass line, growing louder every second. She was really going to do Flawed, he thought with both anticipation and dread. The room plunged into darkness as the the spotlights cut out, all but for the dim lamps around the equipment.
“Hello, Lincoln!” Adam yelled into his microphone, and the crowd answered him with a roar.
At 11:14, Delilah hit the return key on her laptop; Sam crossed himself like the good Catholic he used to be.
