It's time for another post from my YA manuscript, DWARFED. Turns out that the dang six sentences, and only six sentences rule has this week's snippet ending, well, abruptly. Sorry! This week's snippet picks up where last week's snippet ended.
Thanks again for your support and criticisms, you can't begin to imagine how helpful y'all have been. Make sure you swing by the official SSS website and check out the participants, you'll be amazed by the high quality of writing, as well as the variety of snippets.
My stomach rolls over.
The tiny piglet leans against the side of crate, her eyes rolling in porcine ecstasy as Luke’s fingernails lightly scrape back and forth across her back. I saw her less than 12 hours ago, but she looks like a completely different animal. Her soft skin seems a size to big, bunching up around her neck and the tops of her legs. Her hip bones jut and I can clearly see her pelvis as well a few ribs. Compared to her fat and sassy litter mates, she looks seconds away from starvation.
I know, with the exception of the fact that it does have a piglet in it, the photo has nothing to do with my snippet, but when I saw it on the We Heart it website, I knew it was to cute not to use.
