What’s this? It looks like a new post!
Yes, it’s a new post. After my unplanned hiatus from this blog, I’m back! Although the issue was time (and not enough of it), I think I needed a break.
I will start posting regularly again, but I’m going to start with my usual Six Sentence Sunday posts, and reviews of the books I’ve recently read (there’s always time to read!). After the holidays, I’ll start changing things up and get in some newer posts. For now, I give you Six Sentence Sunday.
I’ve joined the many authors who participate in #sixsunday. It’s just what it sounds like: I post six sentences from my work on my blog. That’s it! Follow the link in the caption if you’re interested in participating.
This week’s excerpt is from my WIP currently called STOPPING BULLETS (still awaiting a better title). My main character is a young woman, Justine, with a talent for stopping bullets and moving other things with her mind. She lives a secretive life to avoid becoming an experiment in a lab somewhere.
I’ll pick up just one line after the point I left off at a couple of months ago.
Crowds thinned as I neared Harlem. More steel doors over storefronts. More graffiti. I fit in better now that people wore less designer and more Goodwill.
But with less of a crowd to hide among, I had to worry about the cameras. At the next intersection, I walked a few yards down the side street, a couple of car lengths, crossed the street, and returned to the corner to continue on my way.
This is hardly a finalized work, so with that in mind, feel free to comment!
