Six Sentence Sunday week 51 - What salted peanuts and six sentences have in common...

Wow, it’s been nearly a year that Six Sentence Sundays have inhabited my weekends! I've met many fine writers and learned a lot about different genres. These little snippets are highly addictive!

This weekend from Large Target, Jo is at the home of the missing admiral’s daughter when she finds out that the admiral’s daughter-in-law has turned down the kidnappers' demands, claiming that they don't have a million dollars or any way to raise it. His children agree that they don't.

"Colleen told them to call back tomorrow and put the admiral on the line, so we'd better figure out how much we can offer," Ivor said.

"Would the admiral's money be enough?" I asked.

Amy turned to me and asked, "Why don't you ask Mrs. Madrone?"

"How did you know I worked for Mrs. Madrone?"

She laughed a little wildly, then put her hand over her mouth."You just told me, Jo."

Dozens of other writers share sentences on Sundays--for good time in many genres check them out at Six Sunday.


  1. Well, that's one way to find out the truth. Great six! :)

  2. Jo was definitely out-maneuvered here. Great six!

  3. Nice interaction!

    (FYI-blogspot has a kink in their code that doesn't show the Captcha code for WordPress users, so I can't log in that way and then have to try alternatives. You might consider turning off Captcha on Sundays-- you might get more comments...)

  4. Thanks Jessica and Gem, I enjoy it when my characters unexpectedly take charge like that!

    Angela I really appreciate that info, I'll do that--I'm hopelessly low tech so I'd never have known, thanks!

  5. Happy Anniversary - it's been a year for me too - I wonder how they will get out of this one?

  6. Happy "Six-Sunday"-Anniversary to you too! The plot is thickening apace now!
