Finished the story. Done done. I’m glad and relieved. Now it’s in the hands of my first readers and I can concentrate on a new story. Yep. We’re going back to Haxan.
Someone asked me what the new Haxan story will be about. I gave my standard reply: “Oh, probably guns and wind and dust.”
Then I got to thinking, Hey, maybe that was too flip. Then I thought some more and realized, Nope, that’s about right.
Another friend remarked “Santa Claus doesn’t come to Haxan.”
I think that says it all.
Welcome to Haxan. It’s a rough town. But somebody’s gotta tell their stories. I got picked. What am I supposed to do? I can’t ignore them. These people are talking to me. I have to tell what I hear.
Anyway, the next story has the working title of “White Hawk” and I’m looking forward to starting it tomorrow. I’ll make a few notes tonight, though.
