Happy Labor Day weekend! I still can't believe summer is over, how is that even possible?
It's Six Sentence Sunday again, and this week's snippet from my YA manuscript picks up where the last one left off, with Grace half-naked in a nursery crate. I don't usually push for people to read past entries of my blog, but in this case, if you're new to my blog you really should check out the snippet from two weeks ago, and the snippet I posted last week.
I'm not very happy with the rhythm of the last two paragraphs, they seem stilted to me. If anyone has any suggestions I'm happy to listen.
I stare at my legs, silently taking in the pale skin, the angry red patches blooming on my knees, and the way each one formed a U shape.
“At least I shaved my legs and put on clean underwear.”
Luke slides bonelessly to the ground and howls with laughter.
It’s not easy to be dignified while missing half my clothes, but I give it my best shot. Holding my chin high, I climb to my feet and saunter over to where the piglets growl over my skirt. Crouching, I twist my fingers in the material, giving it a tug and promptly learn that they might be cute and tiny, but piglets are also strong.
I found this adorable photo on the we heart it website.
