It’s Sunday once again so let’s get some six sentence action posted!
This week’s six comes from a WIP I’ve been dabbling with for years – a first-person emotional take on the Cinderella from the pov of a stepsister. I don’t know if I’ll ever do anything with it but it’s been one of the pieces that jumpstarted my creativity and got me out of a rut.
I have never believed I was ugly. Even as a child, I never recognized that I was anything but myself. I was a little girl, just like any other little girl; possibility behind the usual exterior.
There was always something else to take up my thoughts: Father dying, Mother’s grief, and hard times hitting us harder than most. Mother’s grief to a sudden flurry of activity and we packed up all we had to relocate to a remote but prosperous farm. There was also the sudden addition of a new father and a sister.
