Fricka the Hawk - Snippet from #Superhero story for #WeWriWa



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

I’ve switched to snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series. It was originally intended for an anthology that didn’t receive enough submissions. I’m debating whether to expand it into a novella or make an anthology with other short stories. Any suggestions are welcome. 

The story continues this weekend.

Postponing their dinner date was a nuisance, but she loved any excuse to fly on Rockette and use her superpower. Even the idea heated the palms of her hands. She clenched her fists to hide the tiny flames.
The pigeon griped, “Don’t know. That bossy cat never spills details.” Flapping to a tree beside the path, she added, “Fricka’s been searching for Gecko’s little sister.”
We’ll find out soon enough,” Estelle slowed as she rounded the corner to the quiet patio at the rear of the Student Center. A hawk perched on the flat roof; Fricka keeping watch while her partner was at the meeting.
Toby and two of the gang were sitting at a table under a crape myrtle tree laden with large magenta blossoms and out of earshot of idle listeners.

Learn how Estelle gained superpowers and a flying horse by reading Super Starrella, Book 1 in the Secret Supers Series

Reviewers say:
“A boring holiday on a quiet farm livens up for Estella when she is caught in an explosion and develops super powers and acquires a companion - a flying horse. 2 good-looking suitors, her first year at college, and a mysterious super-villain make for a fun read.” 

I really enjoyed reading this story. It was unique, engaging and easy to read.

  11. I'm enjoying this. I can see it expanded into a longer story. If you have other shorts, can they be combined into one story? good luck!
