Sweet Saturday Samples: Just a tidbit this week

Welcome back to Sweet Saturday Samples! Today I offer just a tiny sample, because, well, just because. I'm working hard to get this book finished, edited, and published. Here's Bill Henry:
~~~

He stared at the paper until the lines of script began to wiggle before his eyes, pain surging from the part of his hair to his toenails. He knew he looked a fool with his mouth open, but if he was going to breathe again, the happenstance of his jaw having gone slack might help him drag in some air, if he could remember how that was done.
~~~

Thank you for visiting. Come back every Saturday for more samples. Now, use this list to go to other blogs for more Sweet Saturday Samples. I know the authors enjoy comments as much as I do, so don't be shy.

  2. I like Bill Henry! I picture him as being related to good old "John Henry" but without a hammer in his hand. LOL!

    1. LOL! Bill's good-hearted and steadfast (both good qualities), so the similarities are there. As befitting every good character, Bill has his flaws, but his good traits overshadow his darker side.

      Thanks for visiting, everyone.
