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 .  

Here and there...


Here and there, a splash of color in the woods reminds us that we are temporary, that our brief season, too, will pass in its time, and all that we imagined we had fixed indelibly under the sun will go down to earth to feed other lives.

But even ashes and dust are taken up from the ground and raised into light, imbued with unsought glories.
