Six Sentence Sunday

Another Sunday, another 6 sentences. For more information on this weekly event, stop by the Six Sentence Sunday blog. It's a lot of fun. Basically, it's posting six sentences of any writing you have. WIP, unpublished, published...whatever.

Okay, okay, okay. Which 6 sentences this week...hmmmm. All right! I got it. This is from Duty and Devotion, where little sis Rinny is training to fight:

"The Lieutenant’s training assistant, Sergeant Nowell, followed his chin tap with a quick kick to Rinny’s gut, then a side jab into her ribs. Rinny folded like a rag doll, landing hard on the fighting mat. Lying rumpled, her side and jaw throbbing, she heaved for breath. The room swirled like a roller coaster ride. Sweat dripped into her eyes, stung them.

The Lieutenant continued to instruct from the side."

Good writing all!


  1. Ohhh, I think your link failed to post on the SSS site, but this is a powerful scene. The tough love side of training. Love the military theme.

    Hope you post more next week.

  2. LOL! I know. Me and my PST self put in the wrong time for the posting. It had to be in by 9 am EST and I'm used to posting all my things at 8 am PST.

    But I'll be ready for next week!

    Thanks for liking the sentences. Mucho appreciated!
