#WeWriWa Snippet December 21st Snowflakes & Beeswax

So, is everyone having a fabulous holiday season? I certinaly hope so.

Since it's the holiday season (and because I'm not happy with anything I've written lately) I decided to post from my historical rural romance novella, Snowflakes & Beeswax which is a holiday story set during the Georgian period.Make sure you take the time to check out the official WeWriWa list to see what participating authors have posted. It's quite a selection!



      
      Once the log was cut, Madelyn ran over and helped him load it into the back of the sleigh. She stood on the runner and beamed at him.
            “It’s beautiful.”
            “Is it?” Oliver had never been the kind of person who looked at a hunk of wet wood that had a few clumps of snow clinging to the rough bark and thought the sight was pretty. But if Madelyn thought it was, he was willing to try to see the thing through her eyes.
She knew his thoughts. Madelyn bumped her shoulder against his side, the move startling bold for such a shy woman, and grinned up at him

Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to read my snippet!
