Six Sentence Sunday

Trying out something a little different today.

It's called "Six Sentence Sunday."

Here are the rules and how it works:  http://sixsunday.blogspot.com/p/about.html

So...brand-spanking new (and liberally tinkered with to turn twelve into six) from the new first chapter of  Sleepy Hollow Dreams:

           The rotten-egg whiff of sulphur made Katy Lyndhurst wrinkle her nose in sleep. Creak, clatter, bang, more scratching against the windowsill.
           An ominous howl of wild laughter drifted up on the night air from somewhere down the hill, closer to the Hudson River, in the mystical heart of Sleepy Hollow.
           Katy bolted upright in bed, filled with weird urgency, as if something needed her immediate attention, but she couldn’t remember what. Of course not. You’re still asleep. 

Coming soon from The Wild Rose Press!

Ooh! Spooky beginnings!

Thanks, Dee. (Might have been spookier as 12).

Started out life as a Halloween story. Then got steamier!

I grew up not far from Sleepy Hollow. What a great setting.

This is a most excellent beginning! I totally want more!

Taryn Kincaid said...

Thanks, Lisa.

If you're still in Westchester, we're probably neighbors. (No, I don't live in Sleepy Hollow, though!)
