Writing Wendl - attrition...

Status report on the current novel project, Wendl the Fallen : At around 60,000 words, I've killed off a couple of characters, which is usually an early sign that the story is finding me. The target is a rough draft of about 100,000 words in twelve chapters, which will trim down in re-write and editing to something like 70,000 words in ten chapters. I've never written a novel this dark before - or this funny. To be honest, I'm not at all sure I'll ever be able to finish it. Meanwhile, The Winged Child will be out in February. That is my best one so far.   Henry's books . If you would like Follow.it to deliver Drovers Gap blog directly to your email inbox, click here .  

Even if...

If you simply cannot avoid telling the truth often, become a writer. People will swallow truth in a story that they'd stone you for if you told them face to face. 

Most preachers I know have solved this problem by making stuff up. I'm fortunate to be shepherded by a priest who has decided to live dangerously, like Jesus did. He does tell stories occasionally, but they are all true, whether or not they are factual.

Jesus said that it is dangerous to live too close to the Truth, but that's the only way to keep your life, even if they kill you for it.
