Six Sentence Tax Day

It’s everyone favorite holiday, Tax Day!  I did mine back in February – sorry, suckers.  Today, I’m sharing with you an excerpt from my current work in progress (but not for long), Portrait of Woman in Ink: A Tattoo Storybook.  In this story we meet Sarah, a 38-year-old divorcee who’s getting ready to get her first tattoo.

She’d decided on the Celtic scroll several years back.  Her family was originally Scot’s Irish, a stark contrast to Jason’s wealthy British heritage.  She looked at the sunlight pouring in though the patio doors in the home she’d made for herself.  Buying the place was like getting back to her roots, the roots she’d had before Jason had grabbed her by the hair and uprooted her.  It had taken a long time to get here, but she loved living simply, with a great new group of friends, a new career, everything he’d convinced her wasn’t worth her time.  Now, if she could just get back to her old friends.

That’s all for today. Since I’m stuck in sunny Miami – go ahead and check out all the other talented folks on Six Sentence Sunday for me!  My personal favorites… Carmen DeSousa, Wendy K. Russo, and Monica Enderle Pierce.

    Love a story about a woman past thirty…so rare… Can’t wait to read more of this and thank you for the wonderful surprise of seeing my name as one of your favs. I’m uncharacteristically wearing mascara, so nice but not good. I tear up easily. Romantic-Suspense writer…what can I say! 😉

  2. Great 6, I really empathized with her in just this snippet, you did such a good job of explaining her backstory!

  3. I love the line about grabbing her by her hair and uprooting her. It says so much about their marriage in such a short span of words. Awesome job!

  4. Hehee, that line about her hair makes me think of a carrot! Is that how he was treating her, just a piece of veg to uproot and cook up when he fancied? Sounds like she’s done the right thing. 🙂
