Shades of Grey
« on: April 30, 2007, 11:54:02 pm »
Over in Saddlebag Tales, I've posted a thread.  I've got all sorts of GAF info, things I've learned about local towns, military history, Irish Heritage, gun info and a hundred other little things that roll around in my head.  I need to gel some of these things into a character or two (or ten).  Also, I need to get into the whole cowboy mindset . 

Now...

I'll warn ya good folk:  I've written alot of stuff over the years... but not a Western.  Fantasy, I can do.  Smut, I can do.  I can write more than anyone wants to know about boats.  Never have I written Western.  Ye have been warned.

Post anything dealing with that story over here, please.  That way we can all laugh at me together.  :P

I say thankya,

Will

Wecome, Mr. Dearborn.  Looks as if your yarn is off to a rip-roarin' start - it got my attention, fer sure.

I'd sure like to see a rendering of that "badge" that was on Will's hat; sounds like a combination of several different ones.  You got any such thing?

I have a fairly vivid imagination, and your writing causes much activity, there; I look forward to more of this tale.

Heh.  The  badge is actually the crest of the Fighting 69th.  The Irish Brigade.

FYI - Flooding around Waverly, MO this week.  I'm out sandbagging and other things.  Back in a couple days to continue.

Thanks.
