Sunday Snippet

And here you thought all I could post is donkey art. :P

While I think my illustrations definitely count as snippets of my weekly creative output, I'm also going to post a word snippet because I've been writing on that chapter I vowed to finish this week. Technically, my week is gone and done and I have failed because it is after midnight here. However, according to my rules--and since I'm the one who made the promise to myself, my rules are The Rules--my week is not over until I go to bed (well, sleep; I'm already in bed). So, a short pause from wordslinging to snippet:



      Sola hoped she had the sense to stay away from the Academy and out of sight for a while.
      The trader glanced between the retreating scribe and the hulking shadow. Desperate, or stupid, the trader advanced on the shadow. “Who are you? What is it you do, always watching me?”
      Without deigning to acknowledge the trader’s existence, the shadow resumed his place beneath the rain tree. The trader followed him.
      Stupid, Sola decided. Fiercely so.




And now back to writing. Finish chapter or bust!

Fiercely stupid is sidling up to desperate, perhaps!

Good snippet <3

I think stupid and desperate must get along well, and desperation can make even the brightest fiercely stupid at times. :P

Heh... there are a few in the dog group that have me wondering, but I don't know them personally. :p

Makes me wonder what the shadow is. Haven't come across him in my previous glimpses of this tale.
