Got ‘Em Again

Sixty more pages down, and this time I found something I loved — the sailors’ and cannibals’ Texas-chili-eating battle scene. I didn’t remember I’d written it, I didn’t remember how it went, and it worked.

I didn’t have to slaughter as much on other pages, either. I’m starting to feel some hope that I can get through this.

    You mean they make chili out of the leftovers of the battle?

    Well, Stuart MacBride (Halfhead) might even like it. 🙂

    Good luck with the rest of the revision!

    This is off-topic, but your link to my blog points toward the rants category. Can you change it to ? Thanks!

    Nah, Jim. You know better than to ask what’s in Texas chili! Don’t give it a second thought. That’s seasoning.

    Should I be worried about the cannibal participation…..
