Six Sentence Sunday
April 29, 2012 by Elin Gregory
This week’s Sunday Six is from A Fierce Reaping, my WIP set in 7th century Scotland. Troop Three, the Misbegotten, have realised they need to show their commander more than the usual respect.
“And why do you think I need an honour guard?” Cynon demanded.
“Because you’re as good if not better than Ceredig and Tudfwlch and neither of them go to piss without an entourage.” Cynfal nodded toward the doors of the hall, standing open at this hour, and the group of Tudfwlch’s men who were standing around them, all wearing cloaks dyed with the same warm golden hue. “Just because we’re not so pretty doesn’t mean we honour you the less and for you to walk around alone suggests that we do.”
Cynon nodded. “Then come by all means but know this – I piss alone – I don’t want anyone to be disappointed.”
For anyone who doesn’t know – Six Sentence Sunday
is a fun thing for authors to do. Sign up on the website and on Sunday post six sentences of a story, published or WIP to the link you provided. Then knock yourself out romping around the other writers’ blogs reading their excerpts. I read as many as possible but sadly don’t manage to comment to everything. Sometimes this crappy old router won’t let me.
