Six Sentence Sunday: Slang #3

Here is the final installment in the slang example I've posted for the last two weeks. If you haven't already seen them, you might like to read Part 1 and Part 2 first.

The girl ground the ball of her foot against the dirt street in a squelching motion. ‘Get it?’
Yeah, he got it now. The foot movement spoke volumes her words didn’t. Not just dead, but dead in a spectacular fashion. What he would have called a messy example.
You can find more Six Sentence Sunday writers here.

There is no Six Sentence Sunday next week owing to Christmas Day. There is one on New Year's Day, but at this stage I am not planning to participate as I expect a fair number of you will be sleeping or recovering (or doing both together). Feel free to give me a shoutout if you object to this arrangement.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting with us!

Slang is a great way to give your world a feel. Like slang, jargon is also useful in adding flavour to the dialogue.

Thanks for sharing these 18 sentences :-)

I like it, definitely conveys the point, but in a nonstereotypical way. Happy holidays to you! Great excerpt!

Thanks! I've been told that a couple of times. Now if only I could really figure out what this 'voice' thing is LOL

Ciara Ballintyne said...

Absolutely! I'd never thought about slang before. As soon as I did, I realised why I hadn't. It's damn hard!

Ciara Ballintyne said...

Excellent, that's the aim of the game. Merry Christmas!
