It’s Six Sentence Sunday again! I’m going to try to make this a more regular thing, and you can start getting a real feel for the story. 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 just pick up where I left off last week, where Justine was approaching an apartment complex she cuts through on her way home.
Tenants in doorways ignored me, occupied with their own business. Multicolored Christmas lights outlined windows above them. …
I pulled my hoodie tighter over my head as I started through the complex toward the next street. Only six more blocks to my apartment. It was pretty easy in this last stretch to keep out of sight. Dressed all in black, my copper curls were my only worry.
This is hardly a finalized work, so with that in mind, feel free to comment!
