Six Sentence Sunday #24




Welcome!

I thought I'd share some snippets from a WIP of mine, tentatively titled A Heart Is A Home.

This is one I started a while back, but haven't really worked on in ages. It's not even completely formulated in my head, but it is the story of Adam Taylor (Jason's friend and lawyer from Love Is The Drug), a free-spirited sort who meets and falls for a thoroughly efficient and just a bit stodgy realtor whom he's hired to sell the home he grew up in after the death of his grandfather.

Following are the very first lines in the story.

Adam wandered from room to room the first night he arrived. A photo album in one hand, and a glass of wine in the other.
It was a big house. Built in the 1920s, it was the center house on the north side of Magnolia Avenue. Number 510, to be exact. 510 Magnolia Avenue.

  10. I really liked the sense of grayness, mystery, and sadness this six triggers. I hope you something comes to you, and you're able to develop this story. Based on this snippet, it seem like could go several different ways, and be worked into a variety of genres. Good luck!

    1. Yes. And, I know, it's kind of an awkward end to the snippet, because it stops smack-dab in the middle of his thought, but SSS rules!! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Paula!!
