New thing. New writing. When I started this blog I haphazardly did the Six Sentence Sunday challenge. Since that is now defunct I’m hopping onto the Weekend Writing Warriors challenge. I was late to the party (I’ll try not to be in the future) so I’m not a linked writer but here’s my submission below–8-10 sentences to get the party rolling. Also check out their twitter #8sunday

Jules agreed that the painting is horrific. She could still smell the blood she mixed in with the paint.
