Six Sentence Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone! Wow! Sunday already. The week goes far too fast. As you all are becoming accustomed to, it's Six Sentence Sunday. The time authors get together and share six sentences from a work in progress, a completed work, or a published novel.

Today, by popular demand, we again meet Astrid from my completed Supernatural Thriller with romantic elements manuscript Astrid Walker. If you haven't heard about her please check the last couple Sunday posts and check her out. We rejoin Astrid right after she touches the picture of her friend while in her astral body...
            Coming out of her previous crouch, Astrid rose to her full height. Unsteady on her feet, she reached to steady herself on the dresser. It wasn’t there. She blinked repeatedly to clear her still unfocused vision. Like an unexpected flash of a camera, when next she opened her eyes, a bright light assaulted her.
            No, it wasn’t light. It was…the sun.

And there you have it ;-) If you want to check out other authors who are amazing, by the way. Please visit www.sixsunday.com to see their six.

  11. Like how she went to steady herself on the dresser and it wasn't there. Nice detail that brought me right into the scene.

  12. What makes this is the kinesthetic and the visual together: that sense of disorientation, very like the dropping feeling as one's falling asleep. Though I strongly suspect this isn't a dream...
