Six Sentence Sunday

I came across a tweet about Six Sentence Sunday and thought I'd give it a shot. It's pretty simple: you sign up on the website and post six sentences from something you've written, published or not, by the deadline on Sunday morning.

I've included six sentences from my novel, Class Letters, which will be published in the not-too-distant-future. It's about a high school English teacher who connects with her students through a series of letters (and if you like what you read here, you can download the first three chapters by subscribing to the newsletter). Enjoy!

Keosha was surprised at what she read.  She had never had a teacher who admitted to cheating before.  She had never had a teacher who seemed almost….human.

“But if that bitch thinks I’m gonna tell her ‘bout all the times I cheated, she crazy.”

The next day, replies to the letter began to trickle in.  Anne couldn’t wait to read them and see what her kids had to say on the subject.


  1. I hope you don’t mind, but I tweeted this earlier using the link below the blog. :)

  2. Not at all. ; )


Yes! I've been there, Claire!
