Sizzasnip!

Here are 7 lines from the 7th page of a novel I am currently writing called Oh my God.

“Even his name was not right.  Guardian Angels were supposed to have names like Gabriel and Raphael; all succulent, timeless names that filled the mouth with fruity stodge, like Christmas cake.  This one had a sharp, disapproving, spitting sort of a name.  A name marinated in acid so that whenever I was compelled to speak it, my suddenly razor sharp teeth would wilfully chew the tender flesh of my cheeks.

Sizzasnip!  My Guardian Angel was called Sizzasnip!  No one with a right mind would ever suggest the name Sizzasnip had a celestial ring to it.”

  1. My next pet shall be called Sissasnip. It has a ring to it 🙂
    I had been off of my blog for a month or two and I was searching through comments and I found the one you left on “I Walked on Rainbow” I must know, what is the Old Bags Club? And most importantly, where can I order the t-shirt 😉

    • Hi Andrea, “The Old Bags Club” is a fun poke at young people who think that they’re getting on a bit. We should design a tee shirt and set up a blog for everyone to contribute their birthday wishes on postcards.

      PS Sissasnip is a good name for a particularly playful, irresponsible and crafty cat methinks . . .

    • You are welcome my love. Have I sent you this before, really? Are you sure? I work on so many projects at the same time it could easily be. Now my brain is slightly less drugged I realise I must pace and finish one thing at a time. I have a fancy to post another 7-7-7 soon though . . .

    • Oh my God is number three on the list to complete. I fully intend to frazzle my brain over the next few months and complete everything.

      Lovely to hear from you.

    • Thank you darling. Soon, he says, and again, soon. Aargh! Would that when we sleep we complete everything our dreams reveal. That would be a blessing surely to be wished.
