Theme Thursdays [Conversation] – 26May11

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.

This week’s theme is


CONVERSATION

My THURSDAY THEME for CONVERSATION is below.

Adam slipped from his horse and moved to lean against one of the large outcrops of rocks on the riverbank.
She joined him after collecting her bouquet, and he offered a handkerchief to use as a tie around the base of the stems.
“Aren’t they beautiful?”
“Very. Sara, why do flowers mean so much to you? They touch your office, your studio, your home.”
“I need the reminder that God loves to make detailed and beautiful things, and that act of creation is itself a sufficient reason to make them. These flowers will live and die here, the majority of them never seen, even though a busy road is less than a mile away.”
Taken from “Danger in the Shadows” by “Dee Henderson”
