Nobody noticed...

  Now that I've committed to posting a new short story each month for my Tales and Wanders patrons, I need to write a page or so of short story each day in addition to working on two novel manuscripts. That insures that I manage a little fun writing every day along with all the supposedly serious stuff. Today, I've been writing a little tale about a preacher who turns into a frog just as he is about to begin his homily on Sunday morning. Tentative title, Nobody Noticed.   If you would like Drovers Gap blog delivered directly to your email inbox, subscribe here . You can also sign up on my Tales and Wanders Patreon page to receive a new short story every month, not available anywhere else. New patrons who join before January 1st will also receive a signed copy of my new novel, Among the Fallen , when it comes out in February. henrymitchellbooks.com  

Up and down...

A friend tells me that writing a novel is like climbing a mountain. I wouldn't argue with that, but for me, it is more like walking down a mountain.

The first steps come halting and timid because you're afraid you might trip on that slippery slope and fall flat. But the more words you put behind you, the more their sheer mass pushes you on. After awhile, you can't stop. You must keep moving just to keep your balance and stay on your feet.
