Theme Thursdays [Female Person] – 05May11

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

Firstly thanks to everyone who gave such wonderful suggestions for last month.

We are back again this week with theme’s that are going to follow a larger category. This week’s theme is ……..

Description of a woman/girl…

My THURSDAY THEME for FEMALE PERSON (Description of a woman/girl) is below. Most of us should get this in the very first chapter…

Cutting my morning ritual short, I showered and then drank a scalding cup of tea while drying my hair. It was straw blond and unruly, despite the ministrations of a hairbursh. Like most witches, I had a problem getting the shoulder-length strands to stay put. Sarah blamed it on pent-up magic and promised that the regular use of my power would keep the static electricity from building and make my hair more obedient.
Taken from page 30 – “A Discovery of Witches” by “Deborah Harkness”
