Fitzwater Hughes: Character Development

Well, I’m on track to finish this novella on time! I plan to begin edits on August 1st. Another primary character in this book is a Texas Ranger by the name of Fitzwater Hughes. He’s a new Ranger and currently assigned to Sgt. Bright for training. Prior to his assignment with the Rangers, Hughes worked as a Highway Patrolman in West Texas for a little over ten years. So he has plenty of law enforcement experience and is comfortable working cases alone. His friends and colleagues call him Fitz and he’s an imposing figure to look at. Fitz stands nearly…

For the most part, the average violator will find the first available safe place to pull over and…

Word Count Progress

Gabriel’s Sword continues to progress at a much faster rate than I anticipated. I set a goal of 30,000 words for this novella and a goal date of July 31, 2021. I don’t believe I’ll have any problem meeting both goals. It’s only the 13th of the month and I’m already nearing 20,000 words. I have yet to go back and build out my characters and had substance to the scenes. So far, I’ve been focused on the plot and keeping the storyline moving forward. I have to admit I’m having fun doing this. I also have to admit that…
