Six Sentence Sunday

It’s Six Sentence Sunday—the last one! The folks at Six Sentence Sunday have decided to retire the feature.

Six Sentence Sunday is just what it sounds like: I post six sentences from my work on my blog. That’s it!

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 a gunman has just shot at Justine’s friend, Quinn Duncan.

It happened too fast for me to do anything but watch.

A firecracker sound resounded off buildings. A spark of light. Doorways were suddenly empty.

A groan drew my gaze left. Quinn staggered but remained standing.

This is hardly a finalized work, so with that in mind, feel free to comment!

If this snippet piqued your interest, you might want to check out my last post, where I introduced Justine more fully through a character interview—basically a collection of somewhat random questions that reveal a bit more about her. I’ll be posting more like that, so subscribe to my feed if you’d like to learn more about these characters.
