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 .  

Can't say...


Autumn has always been my favorite time of year, although I couldn't tell you which season I don't like as well. I don't know why the fall of the year resonates especially with me. Perhaps it is the way leaves proudly flaunt their colors in the face of their final descent. It might be because this season has hosted some of my best bright beginnings. Or maybe, I love autumn because after the long summer of holding on it is a relief just to turn loose and rest on the Wind.
