Hump Day Hook!

Okay, because Six Sentence Sunday may not be quite enough...I'm trying out another snippet list. This one is called Hump Day Hook. Participants post paragraphs on Wednesdays.

So here's a paragraph from THUNDER, a 1Night Stand story from Decadent Publishing.
 
 
          The thuds from upstairs sent a shudder through her, and she glanced down at the protective circle of salt she’d cast to form an energy boundary on the buffed, patterned parquet wood floor in the master bedroom. Didn’t seem like the thing was doing much good. But who the heck knew if she’d even drawn it right. She wasn’t a very good witch.

Nice Hook, I wonder if she'll be safe within her circle. Nice bit of humor too. Good job.

Heh...an amusing little snip. I'm curious to see what she's protecting herself from...and if the circle holds.

I like witches who are not too sure of themselves and I want to know more about her and her world. Great hook!

Phoenix Johnson said...

Provokes intrigue, interest, and a slight pity for her, as well as hope that she will learn how to be an awesome witch! Well done

Aww...I hope she gains confidence in her witchability!
I also loved the excerpt from Frost!
