Weekend Writing Warriors: 12 May

I’m back to posting for Weekend Writing Warriors! I’ve been using snippets from my WIP currently called STOPPING BULLETS. 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 a lab rat somewhere.

I’ll continue from my last post (in late March), where Quinn refused to leave and asked Justine what happened. (For the full story so far, see my past SSS posts! The first one is here.) For context, the last lines of the previous post were “Okay, this was not good. I had to get out of there.”

Here are the next eight sentences in the scene:

Before Quinn figured out who I was.
“I mean, what I saw, what I think I saw, that’s just not possible.”
“You’re alive. Enjoy it and leave it at that.” I was breaking another one my rules. I needed to shut up and leave.
“Yeah, thanks to you, but–”
“I’m leaving and so are you.”

This is a work in progress, so with that in mind, I welcome your comments!


  1. Welcome back, Monica. I’m just back myself after taking April off to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo.

    This is good. She’s right though, she needs to stop talking and get out of there. Maybe she can convince him that he imagined it as a result of his shock at the situation.

    • Thanks, Kate! Yes, last month was hectic! Tried to do Camp Nano, but didn’t pull it off. And yes, she sure does need to shut up and amscray, doesn’t she? Next week, we’ll see what she does! 😉
