Among the Fallen - progress report...

Eight chapters in on the initial edit of Among the Fallen. Finally screwed up my courage to cut two pages of delightful stuff that was way fun to write but failed to push the story in any direction at all. With five chapters to go, I've shed a couple of aimless characters and pruned the manuscript to under a hundred thousand words (barely). It's beginning to look like a novel somebody might find time to read. It is the most dark and bloody book I've written, and also the most playful. If I don't die meantime, I should have something to go out to beta readers by summer. The first draft came hard but I'm actually enjoying the editing.   henrymitchellbooks.com  

Seasons...


Summer is still more than a month away, according to the calendar, but for me, summer begins when the Rhododendron calendulaceum (aka flame azalea) bloom, which seems to happen a bit earlier every year. Life's seasons are as much in the mind as in the stars.
