Six Sentence Sunday 5/20/12

Welcome to my second Six Sentence Sunday entry!

Today I offer up six sentences from an in-progress short story (iLove) I am writing for the Mad Scientist anthology for Circlet Press.  Currently I have a contest open to rename Beth in the story, as well as an optional physical description.

Heading to the lecture hall entrance, she slowed her steps just enough that she wouldn't loudly bang into the room.  She wanted the professor's attention, but not by looking like an idiot!  Beth slipped through the doors and slid quietly into the first available seat she saw, her gaze riveted on Dr. Green.  The professor was pacing before the students, dragging one hand through his thick, disheveled chestnut hair and talking about a project that he needed volunteers for.  Beth sat straight up in her seat, her pen poised over a notepad ready to capture every detail.  This was her chance!

I love comments!

    Reminds me of my college days...though I doubt in reality I had the same experience as your character!
