Dust clung to her sweaty skin as Lottie trotted behind the covered wagon and grinned at her baby brother as he played peek-a-boo with her through the flaps.


“Drop the gun and put your hands in the air, criminal!” Agent 456 dared a look around the closet door and watched as the man’s eyes darted back and forth and he released the shaking girl he held at gunpoint and dropped the pistol; the audience burst into applause.


“Breathe, girl, breathe.” Emlyn gripped the controls until her knuckles turned white and sweat broke out on her forehead. “Only the lives of a thousand Runners depend on your ability to land this transport safely on Jeyan.”


Jenna let out a scream of frustration and pounded her fists against the keyboard, taking great satisfaction at the conglomeration of letters that blotted out the dull white of her blank page.

Middle Grade

It felt like waiting for a ticking time bomb to explode as Katy darted down the hall, backpack bouncing on her back, and sank into her chair just as the class bell shrieked.

For nominees, I’m going to do something a bit different. I’m nominating the first 5 commenters to pick a genre and write one sentence for me in the comments! Any commenters after that can write a sentence if they’d like as well, but they aren’t required too. You first five must 😜

Keep planting and watering, the harvest will come!
