A Writer’s Progress

I haven’t been writing here as much as I have in recent months, because my writing time is going towards my first attempt at a novel.  I am 13,400 words in, writing for a market that wants 20,000 – 25,000 words per work, so I am making good progress.  In the mean time I am still reading a ton, and recently came across this description of a young cowpoke in Victor J. Banis’ novel Longhorns:

“Despite his size and youth, he had a cocksure air about him, like a man who had just wrestled the puma and is waiting for you to send in the grizzly.”

More to come.  Via con dios, pards.
