Jenn Reese has a good thing going on her blog. She posted sentences from works in progress. So I’m doing it too…
from a short story in progress "Apocalypse, with Sandwiches":
"I am not a monster just because I have scales, and the chipmunk was dead when I found it. "
from a short story in progress "The Oldies Progression":

from the novel in progress:

The top shelf slammed against Connie’s Jetta, and the paint cans broke open everywhere."
