Another 8 Sentence Sunday

It's time for yet another Weekend Writing Warriors 8 Sentence Sunday. So come join us in the fun that is #8sunday! ;)

Click for more information and to see other 8 Sentence Sunday posts.
This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

Here are 8 sentences from Amnesie.

Maryanne and Elfie have been together for years. Yet suddenly, it's as if they're complete strangers. What happens to love when life changes? Two women in love, one debilitating change...

Maryanne groaned as she changed the laundry. She opened the cupboard. The laundry detergent wasn’t there. “Damn it,” she mumbled. “I hate when Elfriede does this. She’ll either leave things out, or she changes where she puts them. Why does she always have to do this?” Maryanne mumbled in frustration.

Happy reading!!!

Maryanne is obviously not having a good day. Since I read your blurb bout the story, I am wondering if she is suffering some sort of illness causing a personality change - or if Elfie is and Maryanne doesn't understand it's due to illness. Not good after so many years together, sad. Good snippet, really builds the curiousity.

Something's going on here and I'm curious to find out more. Always a good way to leave the reader in suspense. Intriguing eight, Lauren.

In just that 8 sentence scene, I get the feeling something is happening to Elfie. Very subtle foreshadowing. Nicely done.

Very relatable. I think that in any relationship we experience this same type of awkward uncertainty. Great snippet, you did an awesome job putting those type of feelings into words.

The blurb makes me think that the moving detergent may be a symptom. But hey, sometimes people just get distracted!

I've spent more than a few minutes hunting for where I put down my book/phone/purse.
