I’ll Be Seeing You

Red Cross Worker

 

All right, blog followers, I’m 76,000 words into On Eagle Wings Upborne, and I have to tell you it has been a hard week of composing. I am about halfway through the (emotional ) climax of the book and it has been slow going. Let’s just say that a certain character from On Wings of the Morning shows up, and the characters have to work out their reactions to this person. Note that I did not say I had to work them out: the characters have a life of their own and they react in ways that are consistent with their nature and history. I “just” write it all down, and it has been quite a ride this week. I should finish the first draft this week and report on that here next week. Keep reading, friends!

About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
