Wow! This week has flown by in a blur of activity on the writerly front; and here we are at SSS again.
Last week my offering disappeared because of problems with my WordPress app’. However, it’s now sorted so all is well. So, all that’s left for you to do is go HERE for a veritable plethora of Six Sentences from other authors covering everything from romance to murder, Sci-Fi and mystery.
This week, my six again are taken from my NaNo story Defying Leviticus and here, Will and Ned are out for an early morning ride. Not being the most proficient of horsemen, Will is at first unsure of himself in the saddle. But he is more than happy to suffer a little discomfort if it means spending time with his Edward.
It was a gloriously crisp autumn morning, the overnight frost still having the land in its grip where the sun had not yet reached, making the grass sparkle with frosted dew, and cobwebs draped the hedges in shimmering gossamer shrouds.
‘We’ll go at a walking pace, Will’ Edward had told him, ‘Just until you get the feel of the horse’.
They talked as they rode, the miles passing in a blur for Will; and later, basking in Edward’s approval, the walk became a trot and finally a steady canter.
By the time they had reached the out skirts of Colchester, and despite his aching buttocks and thighs, Will, grimly determined, was keeping pace with his friend with ease.
‘Well done, lad’, Edward said with a grin, ‘I see we’ll make a horseman of you yet’.
Will’s face flushed red with pleasure.
