Heart Still Beating – Six Sentence Sunday #7


Hey, Sixers! The rough draft of Heart Still Beating is done (woohoo!), so now it’s on to the agonizing editing stage. Last week’s snippet came from the female MC’s dreaming POV. Now take a quick look at what’s happening inside the dream:

“Let me go now,” I demand. “You can’t keep me here.”

“No?” Dark laughter rolls through my dreaming. “Your brain is far from dead. So long as your heart’s still beating, Lorelei, there’s always hope that you’ll wake up one day.”

Hm, so there you have it. Comments are always appreciated. Come by next week for another peek at Heart Still Beating and the editing should hopefully be done, and I may even have a publication schedule for this bad boy. 🙂

Until we meet again, enjoy the rest of your Six Sentence Sunday offerings.
