Another week, another Sunday dear Sixers! Below is an excerpt from a current adult project, the same one I posted from last week. Sorry it’s not more gritty, but have to carefully avoid using names or spoilers. 🙂

“Oh, God, that’s not even funny.”
“I know. Sorry.
Ew! Thanks for stopping by, and as always, please visit some of the other participants in Six Sentence Sunday. Have a great week!

So glad she added the “figuratively” part! Do NOT want to see a scene like that! Ha ha

Definitely! (And no, they are NOT siblings!)

It doesn’t have to be gritty to be good and this is good. Nice look at the dialogue and the dynamic of your characters. Happy to see more from this!
