Ginger's Six Sentence Sunday

Continuing last week from my current WIP, Chugiak Moon, I offer the following six:


Around her, the constant breathing and occasional snores indicated her family slept soundly.  How she wished she could, but thoughts of the young man she’d met while preparing for the fall hunt stirred her to sleeplessness.  Such a fine specimen, and so unlike any of the undesirables in her own clan.  With her first menses celebration held years ago, at nearly nineteen summers, she was ready to find a mate.  Her mind spun, carrying her back to yesterday when she’d first laid eyes on him.
“Nasnana, bring more brush,” father had snapped instructions as they labored with other clan mates on the fence following the caribou migration trail.

Now, head back to Six Sentence Sunday and follow some of the other links for more samples.  This is a great pastime for authors and readers alike.

Where is she living?

diannehartsock said...

Oh, there's a 'him'! Her life is about to get complicated! Can't wait to see their next meeting. :)

Unknown said...

You must have missed last week's first six where I described the hut she lived in with her family. This is set in Alaska and is about the Tainana Clan within the Athabascan Indians there. Set in the early 1840s. :)

Paula Martin said...

Look forward to find out more about 'him'. Love her restlessness as she thinks about him.

Sandra Sookoo said...

Hope she finds relief soon :-)

Cate Masters said...

Oh who's the new guy? Sounds promising. :)

Elaine Cantrell said...

Oh, he must be something!

Unknown said...

Isn't it the truth...men do complicate things. :)

Unknown said...

Me too, Paula. That's the great part of being a pantser...I haven't met him yet. :) We'll all be surprised together.

Unknown said...

Yeah, like adding another snorer to the crowd is gonna help. *lol*

Unknown said...

Guess we'll find out together. I'm learning as I go...you know, being a pantser and all.

Unknown said...

So far, you know as much about him as I do. :) Maybe Nasnana will reveal a little more this week. Hope so.
