{Writing Journal} Day 14: Snippets from The Rebel’s Bride

I’m shifting toward my winter routine when my most productive time of the day is after everyone heads to bed instead of while everyone is at school or work.

“I don’t believe that is any of your business, Gerit,” Cynel snarled, rising to his feet, hand on the hilt of his dagger.

“I’m just wondering if you want to sell her—”

Gerit sailed through the air, slamming into a tree with bone crushing ease. Mina had barely seen Cynel move, and by the looks around her, no one else had either.
