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 .  

What I'm reading on my phone...


The New York Times describes Keigo Higashino's protagonist in Newcomer as "part Sherlock Holmes and part Harry Bosch." There might be just a wee drop of Agatha Christie's Poirot in the mix as well.

Crime fiction is not a genre I've read a lot in the past, although I did write a mystery (Slick Rock Creek) myself a couple of years back. In the future, I will be reading more of Keigo Higashino.
