Six Sentence Sunday

Today's excerpt from Her Kind of Man picks up where last week left off. Kara has just returned from her sister's wedding and is in the process of destroying her own wedding dress. Why? Because her sister took her fiance away and married him.  Her Kind of Man is available at http://www.lachesispublishing.com/proddetail.asp?prod=HerKindofMan

She threw the dress to the floor and stepped on the hem to hold it down while she tried to rip the bodice from the skirt. The expensive, well-sewn gown gave way so abruptly Kara staggered and fell to the floor among the debris.


What had she done? Sanity returned with a rush, and sickening shame soon followed. Hands shaking, she bundled the destroyed dress into the plastic cover and dropped to the floor to search for pearls and buttons.


Her breath came in gasps.

That's so sad! Now that she's ripped it up she wants it back the way it was. Poor Kara! I just want to hug her and feed her chocolate until she feels better.

Poor woman, she's really a mess right now. Anguish,rage, and then horrified sanity. You really make your reader feel for her. So expertly done!

Very intense. You did a great job with her reaction.

Poor thing! You captured this moment so well, with your description-- I could really see her falling back on her butt and then her despair when reality returned! She's a hot mess right now...

Love the way you've captured such a difficult moment! But, I can't help but feel like this is just what she needed... regardless of what she's thinking as she hunts for pearls.

Poor Kara. Haven't we all had stupid moments we regretted? Great scene, Elaine.

Ladies, thank you so much for coming by. Poor Kara has no idea how much her world is about to change.
