Six Sentence Sunday 10/30/2011

From my work in progress: April’s daughter, Cassie, is pushing the limits with a much older man.

They walked in silence, side by side, through the house to the library. Cassie could feel her stomach tossing about with the anticipation of knowing what was going to happen, yet not knowing when or how. For all of her bravado, Eric was the only man she had been with and she had always felt as if she were the one in control. She stole a glance at the finely chiseled features of the man beside her and knew that he was controlling her, directing everything that was happening. Instinctively, she knew that she was here on his terms, and if she tried to change his agenda this would be the last night she spent with him. So she would play along according to his plans and see what the night would bring.

Need to Make Time to Write

Oy, it seems a couple of weeks have gone by and I haven’t written anything. I just recently purchased Dramatica Pro to help me with the rewrite of my novel. I absolutely love the program but it does take a bit to wrap one’s mind around the theory, etc. Work has been gobbling up my time lately and then I started the Body by Vi 90 Day Health Challenge as a distributor so I’ve been spending time learning as much as I can about the business and the products. I am happy to say that I’ve lost just over five pounds since starting the challenge two weeks ago. Yeah me! Sitting at a computer all day long is doing nothing for my waistline.

So much these days is centered around the computer. I sit in front of a computer almost all day at my job, then there’s email, facebook, checking out the latest headlines on MSN, and writing. The list goes on. I really shudder when I think of the days of my life that have been spent in front of a computer. I think I need to get out more. Actually I think I better schedule time to get out and take a brisk walk. Pretty soon it will be too cold up here in South Dakota to enjoy walking outdoors and I’ll have to resort to the treadmill. I guess the point is that I’m going to have to schedule time to do the things I enjoy or they won’t get done. I’d be curious how my fellow writers combat their expanding computer booties?

To our writing success! – Kendra
