(Some assembly required)
Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. This is a sample from my work in progress, “Frankenkitty”, and I hope you enjoy it. It started out as a young-adult superhero book, and well, you’ll see. In last week’s snippet, Amber gave Mrs Jones a sample of the pink solution. This week starts with the girls in study hall, wondering what to do next.
“What did the book say?”
“It didn’t; he had to wait for the next thunderstorm.”
Mary cocked her head, trying to remember something she’d read, “Lightening; there was something odd about it; not just a big electric spark.”
A boy, one who was not very handsome, a rather gangly, spotty, and very shy fifteen year old, who had been sitting on the table near them, spoke up, “Anti-matter; there’s anti-matter in lightning.”
“Jimmy?” Jennifer recognized the boy from her neighborhood. He’d been quietly sitting next to them, almost every study hall for the whole term; hoping for a chance to exchange a word or two.
Jimmy turned away and looked at the book he was reading. Jennifer persisted, “Jimmy, what did you say?”
Jimmy’s right, by the way, there are positrons produced by lightning.
This is a work in progress. In other news, I’ve become a booktrope author, but more on that latter. It has meant a change in pen-name.
I’m also looking for reviewers for my nearly ready book “The Curious Profession of Dr. Craven” It’s moved out of layout to final assembly, and is now waiting only on the final cover. There was a bit of a hiccough in production, but that’s sorted out.
