Work in Progress: Three Days Late for the Hanging

Progress report:

Last time looked at: 7/11/15

Last actual wordage added: 7/11/15

Pages added 7/11/15: 3

Current page count: 14

Estimated final page count: No idea at all; don’t know if it’s a short story or a novel.

Deadline: None. Purely speculative. Started it on a whim.

Comments: Julie and I got talking about this story, and wound up completely changing where the story was going; I like the new version much better.

So much so that I’ve stayed up much too late working on it. Finished the first chapter/section/whatever, though. Nick and Dan are on their way to Rawlinsburg, leaving Tom and Al in Osborne.


“Deputy, do you really think the Devil would come riding in here on a mule, wearing a dirty old Stetson and boots with the heels worn down? I’d heard Old Scratch was a snappy dresser.”

Dan gave me a dirty look and made a sort of whinny; he never cared to be called a mule, and never mind that to all accounts and purposes he happened to be one just then.
