I humbly apologize if I failed to make it to your blog last SSS to read your snippet. Last Sunday I was unexpectedly slammed with work, and stayed busy throughout the rest of the week.
I'm combining two posts into 1 today, my Six Sentence Sunday Snippet, and my results for Saturday's #OctMadWrite challenge.
Now on to my Six Sentence Sunday snippet. Once again, I'm posting from my YA manuscript, DWARFED, which is so titled because the main character, Grace, is a spunky girl with achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism, who's trying to adjust to life on a Midwestern hog farm. This week's snippet picks up where last week's dropped off. I do apologize, it ends in the middle of a paragraph. You can enjoy more snippets from the great collection of writers participating in this week's blog post visit the official Six Sentence Sunday sign up sheet.
“If,” I don’t like the way Luke emphasizes the word, “she’s not getting enough colostrum, we can bottle feed her, and hope we get enough into her to get her weight up to where it should be. If it’s something more serious … we’ll just have to wait and see. Mostly, it’s up to the pig whether or not she lives.”
I can’t stop staring at the thin piglet. She’s so small, so thin, and even though she’s in a pen with her litter mates she seems alone, like she’s fighting the whole world. My thoughts wander form the piglet to my parents.
Now my results for Saturday's OctMadWrite competition. I was able to scratch out 2672 words for Foolish Beauty. For the #6 Challenge my goals for the rest of the year include:
- finish editing DWARFED
- Reach 20,000 words for Foolish Beauty
- Bang out a first draft of Fatal Destiny during NaNoWriMo
