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...


When former Navajo policeman Joe Leaphorn emerges from retirement, Acting Lieutenant Jim Chee's cold case heats up in a hurry. Any fan of Tony Hillerman will not be disappointed with The Fallen Man.

As in all of Hillerman's novels, the land and the sky are as much characters as any of the creatures that move between, humans included.
