Happy New Year!!! Can you believe it's already 2012? I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around this; can still remember clearly that day in December 2010 when my world changed, and I got the 'call' that sent me on my published writer path.
One year later, and I had 2 books out, and 2012 can only get better (I hope!, LOL)!
And what more awesome way to start a new year than with a Six Sentence Sunday post? Can you say 'perfect timing'? Lol. I've got lots happening, lots of stuff hopping, lots of things planned, but more on that tomorrow. Today, I'm taking you back to the exterior of that private practice in Surrey...
Self-confessed Ice Queen Margo Nolan is having an out-of-this-world moment, when she looks up and finds handsome village doctor Jamie Gillespie across the seat from her. Heat has flared up...
Remember in my last SSS post, Margo was fighting? The tension was strong, atmosphere heavy with a maelstrom of feelings...
But we're starting a new year, and I wanted to give you something light, and that will, hopefully, bring a smile on your face, if not make you laugh outright. :)
The following six happen right after that previous highlighted encounter. Read on for a chuckle:
Jamie Gillespie was definitely a hunk, and at first glance, not a day over thirty.
Latching onto him would be like cradle robbing—she was way over the big three-o, a few years shy of forty, and she dreaded that prospect more than turning thirty, because with forty came peri-menopause; with it, hot flashes, followed by menopause, when many women went mental. Because she faced a dwindling biological clock with every year that passed, the minute she saw a man as desirable, she immediately viewed him as a baby-making machine, even though that had been less and less important over the last few years.
To see Jamie as sexy meant she could clearly picture herself making babies with him—a hot flash crept up her cheeks and stung her skin. She couldn't—shouldn't—picture him as anything but the local doctor. Men younger than thirty had a raging libido—Stop it! ...'
I love seeing this calm, cool, and composed woman all flustered! Don't you? *grin*
Thanks to everyone who's visited - you brighten my week, and I hope to see you often in 2012! Big huge extra thanks if you leave me a comment.
And don't forget to check the rest of the Six Sunday posse - I'll be over to read their amazing snippets and greet them into the New Year in a few. Join me?
From Mauritius with love,
Lol - a baby-making machine! That's definitely one way to look at it... and the raging libido part. So funny - love this! I laugh every time I read it. Great job, sister ... and best wishes for the new year! x
Thanks sis! This excerpt brings a smile to my face every time I read it too - thought it was perfect to share today :)
Best wishes for 2012 too, Nat! XOXO
Hey Zee! RRROOAARR!! Sounds like the young doctor will melt the Ice Queen Margo in no time.
Love this! Sensational, sexy six!
Love how you convey her inner turmoil, and the line about the "baby-making machine..." hehehe :)
Oh that was fun!
LOL. Love her inner conflict over this!
Lol Sandra! The young doctor will definitely bring her fortress down, effortlessly too :)
Lol!! Loved this. She's struggling, but she might as well stop and follow the direction that last about 'raging libidos' was taking her in. :-p
Glad you liked it, Layna! xoxo
*grin* @ Tory!
Lol Sadie - she's waging a battle already lost indeed :)
Oh my, they both sound delicious. I can already foresee all the fun they'll have...
Oh I love this! Her whole attitude just jumps off the page. I think I just added one to my TBR pile! Great six!
I love how Jamie is able to turn her world upside-down no matter how much she tries to maintain her already set life.
This is such a fabulous story! Loved it! :)
Great inner dialog. A cougar story, hmm... nice.
Sounds like a great cougar story. Look forward to reading it!
Omg!! Love it! There's just something about an older woman and a younger man. Yum!
Poor girl. So conflicted!
I love the menopause referrence! Add of dose of truth to the scene. Great six.
This is hilarious! LOL. That man better WATCH OUT! ;C)
Haha! Too funny! I love being in her head in this moment. Great six!
Awesomely fun six, Zee! I loved her menapausal women going mental remark. :D Very funny and very fun. Well done.
Forget the future babies for a minute, she's in lust and I'm betting he's exactly what she needs to cure her problem.
Guess the young doctor don't know what's gonna hit him. :-) Great, fun six.
Lots of conflict here, in an internal monologue that's far from static. Drama can happen in six lines inside the character's head!
Ooh! Love her internal conflict! Great insight into her character! Happy New Year, and may 2012 be bigger and better than 2011!
Nuthin' wrong with a little cougar action. (Says the woman who's been a cougar her entire life!)
Happy New Year Zee! hmmm age is just a number.... and I bet they do make babies, or at least practice at doing so for a long time :D
(laughs) Such a fun six!
Are you certain you weren't spying on me in my 30's??? Sounds like a few lines of my life! LOL!
Seriously, great six. Angela/Nat says wonderful things about you, so I had to check you out. ;)
Happy New Year!
Lol Skye - they are both adorable, and Jamie is totally delish (imho!)! Fun is in the foreseeable future indeed :)
Thanks Joanne! Oh, I'd so love it if you got the book - thank you! :)
Lol Jessica - Jamie is just the dose of unsettling that staid & straight-laced Margo needs. XOXO
Lol Cara - yup, tried my hand at a cougar storyline :) Glad her inner thoughts came across
Thanks Karla! xoxo
Kaylie, that's exactly what I thought! And when the older woman in question is totally uptight with a stick up her a*se, well, what can one say but LOL when their worlds collide? :)
Lol Taryn - she's not at the end of her emotional tether with him :)
Thanks Monique! I wanted to ground that scene in, and since Margo is also a medical doctor, the menopause reference fitted in just right :)
Lol Sarah - yup, he's in for a wild ride :)
Thanks Cherie! XOXO
*grin* @ Siobhan! I thought that remark really fitted, and since it's not something I'm basing on conjectures, I added that in :)
Lol Gem - she's totally in lust all right! Totally out of her depths too :)
Lol Sherry - Jamie has a wild & rocky road ahead of him with lust-crazy Margo :)
Thanks E.P! Yes, it's amazing, innit - six sentences but there's scope to show so much... :)
Thanks J.C! Happy New Year to you too, and here's to an amazing 2012! XOXO
WTG Lex! Hmm, I bet you have a lot of fun... *wicked grin*
Happy New Year to you too, Sue! Lol, yeah, I guess they do practise at making babies - after all, practise makes perfect, innit? *grin* XOXO
Lol E.Jamie - glad you got a laugh! :)
Lol - so good to know these lines ring true, if you say they look like your time. :) Glad you could come over - and Nat says lovely things about you too (she's a total darling, isn't she?) :)
Intriguing six, l like your character and the emotional turmoil she seems to be going through. I would say to her...grab him!
you say "cradle Robbing" like its a bad thing. LOL
*laughs* I really like the argument she's having with herself. Even when you describe her perception of young men, it feels like she tries to temper the baby-making machine concept.
Lol Gemma - I totally agree! Go get him already, right? :)
Lol Jayel - for Margo it is, but she'll revise that assumption very soon *wicked grin*
Thanks Aheila. It's been fun to be in Margo's shoes, to upset her world with the prospect of lust for a hot young man :)
Sorry for missing last week; thought I'd just backtrack to make sure I didn't miss out.
I liked Margo when you first introduced her because of how hard she tries not to be affected by anything around her, so it's great to see someone get under her skin. Especially since it's someone that she WANTS to get under her skin. Great six, Zee!
Thanks so much for visiting this one, JM! xoxo
And yes, she definitely wants him under her skin, and that's what totally scares her. Poor woman, eh? :)
