Six Sentence Sunday

I probably should have chosen something from FORESHADOW to post today, but I'm just having way too much fun writing OUROBOROS! It was so hard to choose. Here's six sentences from OUROBOROS, book one of The Zayin Chronicles. I just wrote this earlier this week, so please keep in mind that it's unedited.

           “Is it getting hot in here?”
            Zac coughed. “I think I smell smoke.”
            Glancing around, I noticed a light in one corner of the library that hadn’t been there a moment ago. As we watched in horror, an entire bookcase burst into flames. One by one, the fire began to encroach on the other bookcases—and it was heading for us.

  2. I'd be panicking just because the books were on fire. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Don't worry, they don't just stand there.

    Vivien, I know what you mean! It was hard to just write it.

  4. Sounds like they're in that surreal moment of slow motion.Great six :)

  5. Oh my goodness! I'm devastated by the thought of all those books going up in flames!
