SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY - 2/12/12

Thanks for stopping by to read this week's six sentence snippet (try saying that five times fast!) from my Chick Lit novel, BLAME IT ON THE FAME.  My book follows the journey of the five fictional ladies who've been nominated for Best Actress at the 2012 Oscars, from the moment they receive the news right up to the big night when the envelope is ripped open and the winner's name is revealed.  One of these nominees is supermodel-turned-film star Anaya Reynolds.  She's young, she's brash, she likes to party, and she's always feuding with someone.  In the following excerpt, a hungover Anaya has been rudely awakened by her manager, Robert.  He wants her to figure out where she is so that he can pick her up and get her to the set on time, but she'd rather debate the merits of one of her most valuable assets.


*  *  *  *  *


"I have a great ass, an ass that sold eight million pairs of True Religion lo-rise jeans.  My ass brought dark wash denim back," Anaya reminded Robert as she left the apartment and staggered down the corridor towards a bank of elevators.

"I stand corrected.  You have an amazing ass.  We should have it bronzed for posterity."
      
"I think JLo already did that with hers and I'll be damned if I'm gonna copy that uppity, no-talent heifer."

  4. Feisty little thing, isn't she? Hmm, JLo is a no-talent heifer, eh? Makes me wonder where Anaya's talents lie. Great job!

  5. Ouch, she's got a chip on her shoulder... Or maybe somewhere else. He seems to know to handle her though.

  7. LOL, I bet he'd asked where her sorry ass was, which set this off? She's one feisty character!

  8. Poor Robert. But it sounds like he's accustomed to dealing with Anaya's ego! I'm guessing the dialogue between them is hilarious. Great premise for a story.
