On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Six Sentence Sunday #50


Hello, welcome to another #sixsunday. Thanks so much to those who stop by and comment each week. :)
I'm continuing with Keir this week, and after Quin's help is refused, she resorts to conversation in the hope of making progress...

Why are you in here anyway?”
“What does that matter?”
“I’m curious and there’s not much else to do.” She tilted her head. “Did you hurt someone?” When he remained silent, her expression darkened.

  3. Good non-verbal response. Very interesting characters you've got here.

  4. Non-verbal responses really say so much more than tone, don't they. 35 days!

  5. Wow. Now that's a great hook. I can imagine what's going on inside her head at the moment--and all of seems pretty dire. ;)

  6. I like that he answers her first question with a question and then doesn't answer her second question at all. Great dialogue. :)

  7. Nice interchange! His silence says it all, as does her stare...

  8. Somehow she's determined to get him to open up.

  11. Love their communication on a deeper level. She'll get it out of him, lol

  12. Interesting. Lots of communication going on behind what they say.

  13. Great tension born from simplicity. The sparsity of this entire scene has given it weight.

    (I know this is last week's, but I'm running in slo-mo this week. Also wanted to thank you for commenting on my post last week, Pippa.)
