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.

Stupid, Sola decided. Fiercely so.
And now back to writing. Finish chapter or bust!
