Sunday is my favourite day of the week.
This Sunday is Fathers' Day so I've been doing the family things.
Then I made time to read a play a friend has written: Antigone - based on the play by Sophocles. The play is written in verse. Now I have a 2452 year-old headache ;)
My Six Sentence Sunday is from STARRING.
In the calm before..., Lucas' quiet moment at the woodland edge is interrupted by the arrival of the Butterflies... the two girls who sit nearest him in class:
“Sorry, Cate drags me here whenever Dirk Hawkesmore is playing John Bowden."
On the distant tennis court, two older boys were thumping an innocent ball around and grunting like the game was warfare.
“Who is she watching?”
"Either. She can’t decide which is all-that-'n'-more.”
Cate rested her head on one hand holding up her wide smile.
The pace is - finally - picking up. There are always lots of people about and I work best without interruptions.
CAN YOU CONCENTRATE WHEN THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE AROUND?
