Six Sentence Sunday - extract from The Dating Game 19/8

Yep, it's rolled around again, Six Sentence Sunday on this sunny (yes, don't faint from shock!) August morning. Don't worry, I'm sure it will be raining by lunchtime.

Since the release for The Dating Game is happening in the next few months, I decided to continue with a snippet from that this week. I might nip back to Sign of the Times for SSS once I've finished writing The Dating Game and I am 90-95% done now! But, for today, let's see how Gill is faring on her latest date. Enjoy!


She was getting the hang of it – finally.
Deciding she’d be a little bit more daring, Gill thought she'd try the fancy footwork the father in the next lane favoured. Maybe it wasn’t that difficult after all. Concentrating hard, Gill swung and bloody hell, what's happening?  Gill’s right foot crossed the line, milliseconds before she let go of the bowling ball, she slipped on the waxed surface and both legs shot up in the air.

Remember,  you can check out all Six Sentence Sunday entrants at sixsunday.com, after 2pm UK time (9am EST).
And, as ever, if you can't wait for The Dating Game to come out, why not pick up Sign of the Times, my first novel, to whet your appetite in the meantime
If you like drama, humour, Scotland & Italy, it's for you! -

  2. I have some catching up to do with context, but even so, this struck a note for me. I always manage to injure something when I go bowling ;) Is Gill wearing a skirt?

    1. I almost put this in earlier, but for the record, this is based on me going on my ass many years ago. I was fortunately wearing jeans! I fell and got back up so quickly my friends wondered if they had imagined it!! Double fortunately, I wasn't on a date!
