Six Sentence Sunday – 8/12/12

Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work. 

I am so sorry I never got around to visiting everyone last week. I underestimated how much RWA drained me. I promise to go around today!

Today’s Six Sunday is picking up where we left off last week with STEAM ME UP, RAWLEY, my steampunk romance set in Mobile, AL. Loki returns Rawley’s cravat that had flown away when Rawley landed in his hot air balloon. Loki is a monkey and he’s wearing oyster shell armor, so that you know what Rawley means at the end:

“What have we here?” Dr. Rawley squatted in front of Loki and held out his hand. Obligingly, Loki placed it in his palm like he was bestowing a great and delicate treasure. “What an obliging creature. Thank you, little sir.”

Dr. Rawley gave Loki a pat on the head, and asked, “Are these… oyster shells?”

As always I welcome constructive feedback. Thank you!

    Angela, this is cuteness taken to the extreme! Very fun six.

  13. Sarah W August 12, 2012 at 10:34 am #

    We missed you, Angela!

    A monkey named Loki—it doesn’t get more appropriate than that. :)

  14. Jess Schira August 12, 2012 at 10:50 am #

    Loki sounds like an adorable and smart little guy. I love the idea of armor made out of clam shells, very creative.

  15. S. J. Maylee August 12, 2012 at 10:51 am #

    I can see little Sir Loki sharing his treasure. Fun 6.

  16. sueannbowlingauthor August 12, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    Now why on Earth is Loki wearing armor?

  17. Joyce Scarbrough August 12, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    You can always judge a man by how he treats children and animals. I like this one!

  18. Carrie Crain August 12, 2012 at 11:48 am #

    Cute visual. Now, I’m going to be thinking about monkeys and oysters!!

  19. Monica Enderle Pierce August 12, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    You’ve created a clear and charming picture in my mind. Love these six, Angela. 😀

  20. Krystal Wade August 12, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    Now I want to pat the monkey on the head. Very cute.

  21. J.M. Blackman August 12, 2012 at 12:16 pm #

    You’ve got such likeable characters in this. And this snippet is a good look at two of them that are terribly charming! Love it!

  22. Sue August 12, 2012 at 12:37 pm #

    What a nice man to pay attention to the monkey – damn good thing he does I bet 😀

  23. Kate Warren August 12, 2012 at 1:08 pm #

    Yes, more Loki! I love Loki! Good that Rawley seems to like him as well.

  24. Elin Gregory August 12, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

    I love the idea of oyster shell armour. Very nice six and at least Rawley will be properly dressed now and spare our blushes. :)

  25. Owllady/Marcia August 12, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

    A monkey wearing *armor* made of oyster shells! Woot! Really like this excerpt Angela.

    Sweet six…love the natural dialogue.

  27. Ryan Derham August 12, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

    Awesome six. Fun characters and terrific dialogue and description. :)

    Fun six! The monkey is adorable, with or without oyster shells. :)

  29. K.E. Saxon August 12, 2012 at 2:58 pm #

    I love that doggone monkey! I always find it so entertaining in books when one of the characters is an animal. Really enjoying this story, Angela. Great six!!

  30. Teresa Cypher August 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    Very creative, Angela. My fave part– “… a great and delicate treasure.” Nice word choice. Great six :-)

  31. Silver August 12, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    Love Loki and the glimpse into Dr. Rawley’s personality. Fun six this week, Angela!

  32. veronicascott August 12, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

    Wow, I can visualize the oyster shell armor – neat concept! I don’t think Dr. Rawley is ever at a loss – I like him! Excellent excerpt! Was so nice to meet you at RWA, wish we’d had more time to actually chat longer!

    I want a Loki for Christmas please. Lovely writing, Angela. Awesome.

    Nice how Loki is wearing armor. I could picture the scene so well. Great six as always!

    Obliging and clever! Wonder who made his oyster shell armor?

  36. A.S. Fenichel August 12, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    “…like he was bestowing a great and delicate treasure.” This is great! Love this six!
