A Sentence I Like

"Her face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, bright eyes and a bright passionate mouth, but there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget: a singing compulsion, a whispered “Listen,” a promise that she had done gay, exciting things just a while since and that there were gay, exciting things hovering in the next hour."

-The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

That's one long sentence! And lovely.

When are we going to hear one of your sentences that we like so much?

I'm moderating F3 this week, if you want to throw your hat back into the ring. The prompt will be up Friday morning. Why not join in the fun? You too, David Barber...
