Six Sentence Sunday 4/10

12 Comments

Cassie dashed into the one hundred year old brick building that housed The Spirit Newspaper, her new place of employment. The low ceilings and worn wood floors were a far cry from the ultra-modern offices she was used to working in. Her desk, functional rather than aesthetic, was crammed with the six other desks of her colleagues. She dropped her tote on a pile of papers on her desk, took her seat and studied her boss as he approached. Red Mitchell, the editor of The Spirit, was fifty-something with thinning reddish hair and the guts to give her a second chance. She owed him a lot.

“Working for the Spirit isn’t the same as working freelance,” he said when he reached Cassie’s desk. “You don’t make your own hours.”

For those new to this, the rules are simple:

1) pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published

2) pick six sentences

3) post ‘em on Sunday

See? Easy. Want to join in? See the site for information on how to do just that: Six Sentence Sunday.

  1. It sounds as if Cassie is in for quite a change!

  2. What are the hours? Wish I could read more now.

  3. Sounds like somebody started off the wrong foot! Made me curious to know what happens next.

  4. Uh-Oh, sounds like she’s in trouble.

  5. Why doesn’t she work in those sleek modern buildings any more? Why does she need a second chance? Lots going on in those six sentences!

  6. Spirit? Sounds like some interesting journalism is gonna be happening

  7. Nice descriptive writing with trouble on the horizon.

  8. Sounds like a building with character. Now, why did the boss need guts to hire her?

  9. Thank you ladies for visiting today and leaving a comment. A writer gal can never hear good feedback too often. 🙂 Cass has a lot going on and all hell will be breaking out soon for her.

    Have a great week!

  10. I’m intrigued. Yes, what are the hours? Does she get lunch?

  11. Sounds like fun! I’m stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.
