Another short story snippet based on my novel character Zouriel. Basically another piece where I explore his character and background, his default setting when his character arc begins in my novel.
Had some self doubt about my writing, caused by focusing on the wrong things and not writing/reading stuff that really thrilled me. As a bit of a balm I leafed through one of my books on writing and found a nice prompt to play with. I feel strongly enough about this that I might include it in that legendary in-progress book based on my NaNoWriMo. It would be a nice twist to the story in the later half.
Without any further ado, read below if you please.
