MERRY CHRISTMAS

I will be taking 8 days off for Christmas and won’t be online during that time, so I want to wish all my friends, family and loved ones a very Merry Christmas and may God bless every one of you very richly and keep you safe and healthy.

I have been moving right along on SONS OF THUNDER; I got several pages written yesterday and now am up to page 45, almost done with Chapter 4.  I am going to try to get some more written today before I begin my Christmas vacation.  The scene in Chapter 4 is the toughest, most challenging scene I have ever written.  It deals heavily with day-to-day life in a Hebrew family in the times of the New Testament and took a lot of research and actually some soul searching.  I think you will see what I mean when you read it.

Okay, that’s all for now.  Merry Christmas, everybody…

A REAL STRUGGLE

For the last week I have been struggling over a certain scene in SONS OF THUNDER, but finally got past it.  Man, I think this was the toughest two pages I have ever written and I’m really happy with it.  But got it done and I’m off to the races again.

CHAPTER FOUR

I’ve gotten some more good writing done on SONS OF THUNDER the last couple of days.  Had some time off so I took advantage of it and now I am well into chapter 4.  I’m having to do a lot of research on things like bar mitzvah and just what it is and what it meant at the time of the New Testament people.  I am having to research a lot about Hebrew family life in those times.  But it is being time well spent.  I want to make sure that what I write is technically and Biblically accurate.  But it is coming right along.  Soon I will put up on the web site what I have gotten done.  Will keep you posted…

GOT A LITTLE MORE DONE

I had a little while to write tonight and got another page and a half written on SONS OF THUNDER in about an hour.  I’m up to page 34 now.  I feel real good about the way it is coming along.  Can’t want for some of you go get to see it and let me know what you think.  In the next day or two I think I’ll put up an excerpt on the webpage.

WELL INTO CHAPTER THREE

Got a few more pages written on SONS OF THUNDER today.  I am up to page 32 now and well into chapter 3.  I really like the way it’s coming along and the direction the story is going.  Had my doubts at first, the way I was starting the story out, but it’s turning out to be gooooood.  I am aiming for 300+ pages.  If it gets that far I am 1/10th done!  That’s some kind of a milestone, at least.  I should still be able to make my Fall 2013 deadline.
