Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
Today, I’ll continue the scene from my new release, Super Starrella. Estelle was knocked unconscious in an explosion. When she woke, she was tied down in a weird cylinder and heard strangers discussing her.

I’ve skipped a couple of lines, and punctuated to fit:
Soft footsteps crossed the floor and a woman with sharp green eyes hovered into Estelle’s restricted view. The woman wore white overalls, and the severe oval of her face was framed in short brown hair. Leaning over Estelle, she asked, “How do you feel, Miss Wright?”
“I’m okay,” Estelle’s voice was hoarse and her throat felt dry. She whispered, “What happened to me?”
“There was an accident. We kept you overnight for observation and we’ve seen no evidence of physical damage.” The woman waved a stubby stick over Estelle’s body. The tip of the stick lit blue and Estelle imagined it was a magic wand.
“Can I go home?” Estelle shivered, afraid she was an unwilling participant in some outlandish experiment.
Teen superhero, Starrella, and her flying horse tackle villains in the skies of Atalanta.
The quiet summer before her freshman year turns frighteningly weird after Estelle Wright trespasses onto an Army base. Blown into the air and knocked unconscious, she wakes with a nascent superpower. Not to mention a winged horse with a snarky attitude and a mind of her own.
Back home in Atalanta, a serial killer is targeting the students at Goldman University. Before long she must juggle college classes with sneaking out of the house after dark to battle alien monsters. Estelle’s life is in danger, but who can she trust: handsome Captain Copper from military intelligence, or hunky Toby, the tough gangster with a motorbike? Both men have secret agendas, but falling in love is not in their plans.
Young adult superheroes, quirky animal sidekicks, and a dash of romance enliven this thrilling adventure. Book 1 of the Secret Supers.
As always, your comments are welcome. I may be running late this week since I'm away celebrating my wedding anniversary.
