Yay! I made it two weeks in a row for Weekend Writing Warriors! If you want to know more about this weekend adventure, click the link or the logo to read about it and get your link listed.
I have the next snippet from my WIP. Currently titled STOPPING BULLETS, it’s 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: last week, Justine had been trying to keep her mind off the exposure of her secret to Quinn when he walked through the door of the diner, and she did her best to act normal. Her fellow waitress saw through her facade, though. (For the full story so far, start with the Six Sentence Sunday posts! The first one is here.)
We ended the last snippet with Justine asking herself, “Boy, did she have the wrong idea.”
And here are the next eight (if something reads a bit awkwardly, there was a bit of fudging to get this bit to eight!) :Quinn walked straight to the counter, looked at me, then at his coffee. Finally, he took a seat. “Hi,” he said as he tried to look at me again, but his eyes darted back to the coffee. “Uh, thanks.” He took a sip, then unbuttoned his coat with one hand. I avoided looking at his arm and ignored guilt that rose in me. “Anything else?” “Uh, yes, actually.”
Work in progress here, but I’d love to know what you think!
