Filthy Henry Novels

Small Stolen Update


Nothing much to report sadly on the progress of book four in the Filthy Henry series. I'm still on draft number three, currently working on chapter twenty, and my little notebook of work doesn't seem to be getting any smaller.

One note, that I had written during draft two, just has the words 'Chapter 19 is utter crap, redo it all'.

It appears that past-me is a very harsh critic and wants present-me to do a sizable amount of work.

Isn't that always the way? Some wise-guy delegating tasks he should do himself to others, only to come along and steal all the credit at a later date when the job is done.

Just that thought alone has enough madness in it to warrant a Philip K. Dick style story about time travel or something.

On the plus side I'm happy with how the book is currently going, even if it is taking a little longer. Of course that may boil down to the fact it is the longest one in the series yet. Currently sitting at thirty chapters. I'm not sure what the page difference is and don't want to put that here as it will change by the time the final draft is completed. But that's thirty chapters with me being a hard editor who cuts entire scenes that don't work right.

I can only wonder if I make it to thirty chapters when I'm done with the book.

"I can only wonder if I make it to thirty chapters when I'm done with the book." - unless past-you critic prevents this from happening, then its Inception all over again - but this time, it will make sense
