Weekend Writing Warriors: 11 Aug

A sword and quill, the badge for Weekend Writing Warriors
Weekend Writing Warriors

Again I missed last week’s Weekend Writing Warriors! Things have been a little crazy, but I’m going to try to keep up.

I have another snippet from my WIP for the weekly posting. If you want to know more about this blog hop, click the link or the logo to read about it and get your link listed.

My WIP, currently called STOPPING BULLETS, is the story of 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 a lab rat somewhere. But her secret isn’t going to remain a secret much longer.

To update: two weeks ago we found Justine considering whether it’s time to move on, find another city where she can live in anonymity. Just like she’d always done. Except this time. (For the full story so far, see my past Six Sentence Sunday posts! The first one is here.) We ended the last snippet with “For the first time I could remember, I didn’t want to leave.”

Well, here’s the next eight!

This was new. Leaving was just, well, normal. It’s what I did. Not what other people did, sure. But I wasn’t other people.’
 
Sometimes I wondered what it would have been like, living like other people. Maybe I’d have friends, family. Maybe when I got to know someone, I wouldn’t have to relocate.
 

 Work in progress here, but I’d love to know what you think!
