Six Sentence Sunday 7/8/12


Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday!  I hope you enjoy these six sentences from what is currently chapter one of my WIP.  My main character is pondering some of her favorite semi-believable myths:

For one, she was a firm believer in moon-flyers, she swore she saw one while camping with her mother as a young girl.  She also -until this assignment- enjoyed reading the evidence about how humans used to have ten digits on their feet until “evolution deemed the most lateral toe obsolete.”  

            The most hilarious tale was the pre-digital moon landing.  It supposedly took place in the year 1212 Pre-Settlement Era, as if any space travel was possible with computers that ran on mere megabytes. 
 
            Then there was her favorite myth:  the male.  The idea of such a creature was both frightening and intriguing.  

         I hope you enjoyed my six!  Make sure to check out other great reads at Six Sentence Sunday.
