Six Sentence Sunday (Jan 15)

Middle of January already, people--where is the year going????  I do hope it's a great one for you so far.

Another Six Sentence snippet for you from Restoring Experience, the novel I'm planning to pitch at the San Francisco Writers' Conference next month.  You can read last week's snippet here, and previous SSS posts here.  Remember to visit the Six Sunday site for links to other participants--great writers there, and some have new releases, books you can actually read, all at once :)

With no further ado:

“Are you happy?”  He put an arm around my shoulders.
“I am.”
“About the apartment in Italy?”  The excitement that spilled into his voice was tinged with triumph.  He was proud of himself for finding this apartment.

Look forward to your comments and your own snippets :D Happy Sunday, everyone!

  4. I like that she picks up on his triumph, and I wonder if she really *is* happy. Hmmm, subtly intriguing.

  5. Thanks, girls, for stopping by :) @ Sue, sorry about the confusion: i should have clarified it's Dan & Alexia, yes. @ Melissa, glad you liked that description--I struggled over it like you've no idea :D @Monica, that's super perceptive of you--Alexia doesn't seem quite so excited, does she? Thanks for the visit, and "see" you soon on your own blogs!
