I decided to investigate any other use of Hawk as the name of a crime-fighting hero. I came across a variety of entries when I used Google, so with effect from today my novel’s working title is changed to – HAWK, A HUMAN HUNTER. I am still in the early stages with my novel. The accompanying graphic is a drawing I did of a fox. It may be a different animal but it came to mind as I thought of a hunter who is cunning, skilful and a colourful character.
It’s Day Six of the writing challenge to beat all writing challenges the NaNoWriMo. Perhaps it’s because it’s still early days or is it because I’ve just completed Chapter 3 … whichever it is, I still feel upbeat about my novel idea. My next chapter is already underway … at least in my head. Whilst things are going well I’m intending to continue with the tale.
Progress is being made by both me and my main character. I had the good fortune to receive one of my writing magazines on Thursday through the post and what was featured in it … ‘chapters’ the building blocks of a novel. Two things came to mind.
Firstly, when I read the article by James McCreet I decided it was as timely as any article could be to drop in your mailbox.
Secondly I thought it would be a good idea to write a letter to Writing Magazine to tell them of my good fortune and thank Mr. McCreet at the same time. It seems like months since I saw my name in the letters page of a magazine … oh yeah, that would be because it has been months.
Time is moving on and so must my story so if you happen by please take a moment to sample HAWK, A HUMAN HUNTER. All the first three chapters are featured on the links to the left on this blog. If you should decide to have a peek I’d be delighted to see any comments you may have. Feel free to say what you think … the Hawk isn’t real so he won’t be coming after you.
