This will be my first year participating in National Novel Writing Month. I have a sequel to write, so a 50K sprint is looking good right about now.
(You can find me here if you want a writing buddy.)
Anyway, my Six Sunday shares for the rest of this month will be excerpts from character exercises. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to hang out with Emma and Harper, and I’ve never been inside Emma’s head. So learning her, and how she interacts with her hero, has been interesting.
I have my fingers crossed that I’ll have both plot and two cooperative demons by November first.
Here’s Six from Emma’s book.
Harper’s gaze strayed toward the sky. While he stared up, I glanced down and saw a set of identical depressions in the soft ground where he’d stood. Carved deeper than his other footprints, I decided he had indulged me. Stood there watching my enjoyment.
“So eager.” His chuckle raised hairs along my nape.
You can find more Six Sunday fun on the official blog, right here.

I need more of this story! I had to pause for a while on the picture first.. more of the story, please Hailey?
I was telling my cp yesterday that every time I put those two on the page, it ends with Harper threatening to take Emma over his knee. They have lots of unresolved issues, and he's a firm believer in sexual healing. *snort*

Holy Hot Damn…okay that picture alone had me heated…the snippet, wow!!!
Taryn Kincaid says
Yeah, let's hang with Harper and Emma. And let's indulge them!
sentences? there were sentences? I didn't see any…. OH there they are. ok, now I want more of both!
Dee Carney says
Um, there are words beneath that pic? Maybe in an hour or so I'll see them.
I see it was a tactical error to put the picture above the words. Maybe the universe is trying to tell me your candy can't be beat?
Christa Paige says
I'm with Taryn–indulge them. The imagery is awesome, love how the hairs on the back of her neck stand up with her realization. Good luck with NANO.
Rebecca Royce says
Oh wow! THat is hot!
Jessica Subject says
I love the picture! After reading your six sentences, I want to know more.
PG Forte says
Oh, what a place to end! Mmm. I love those hair-raising chuckles.

Looking forward to reading more from Emma and Harper.
