I don’t know about you, but it’s been a while since I’ve done a good piece of fiction. I’m going to stoke up the creative fires by working on a western.
This western will not be based on my work that I’m trying to get published. This is going to be a western set in the Utah Territory.
The focus will be on one of the Pony Express Riders who rode that route.
As always, I’ll try to keep in focus the era and the mindset of the people of that era. I will also keep an eye on the personal psychology of the main character.
What makes him the way he is?
What past experiences guide or misguide his choices?
What are his goals?
Why is he in the place he is?
How will he respond to the challenges that come to him?
And you will be along for the ride so dust off those boots and saddle up.
The trail’s callin’.
