Six Sentence Sunday – 1/15/12

Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work. I’ll share a snippet from my time-travel romance WIP. I currently have this out to Beta readers for feedback and hope to be in a position to query for agents by March. Here’s my working query hook for it: Isabelle Rochon has met the man of her dreams. There’s only one problem: he lives in a different century.  (You can see the other entries here.)

Thought I’d share the moment she transitions to 1834.

The room spun around her, the air, colors and sound muted as if she were inside an abstract watercolor painting. She put out a hand to steady herself. What the —? She shook her head. Nearby stood French doors that led to the balcony. She stumbled to the open doors and leaned against the door jamb.

If you were here last week for my 6, it inspired a post on dorky moments. Share yours!

Have a great Sunday!

  1. Yes, the watercolor painting is a terrific visual. I could grab ahold of that and immediately understand how disoriented she must feel.

  2. I love the way you compared her surroundings to a watercolor painting. So vivid and beautiful. Nice six!

  3. Angela…how sweet of you to mention my time-travel. I’ve definitely got to have yours when it’s published. Loving it, especially her confusion which you make so effortlessly apparent.
