Good news—for me, at least

My angina is now back under control so that I can resume writing. I have nearly completed a story that is about 60,000 words long; that's twice my usual length. Lately, I have been taking the time to read other stories with a more critical eye, and I now understand the complaint that my chapters are too short. I have taken that to heart with this story in which the chapters are close to 6,000 words long, instead of my previous standard of 3,000 words. I don't know how long I can keep up with the long chapters, but I will try to stick to it.

The new story is named "Hunter" and is about a boy of 14 in Arkansas who makes a business of hunting and selling wild hog carcasses to local butcher shops. In the story, he becomes rich with the business and takes on a new job. No, he is not a bounty hunter for those who are about to cut me off, though he does do a lot of hunting in his new job.

There is some sex in the story as he takes his widowed mother as his wife. They do have children. I hope that you will like it when I start posting, hopefully pretty soon.
