Awesome day for writing, today. The narrative flowed well, the dialogue felt natural and overall, it’s making sense!

To celebrate, he’s the opening paragraph of Ain’t No Redemption:

From Chapter One: Of Gunpowder Deeds (First Draft)

There are many ways to kill a man. A blade in the night, poison in his drink, or hands around his throat. For some it was a question of what he deserves; a reaction to past injustice. Laws were set in place to decide folk’s fate. Rules that say a man must die in one fashion over another in relation to the crimes committed. But these were rules for men who fancied themselves complicated beings, who saw themselves a complex creatures of order. It is all a conceit.

Bates had one answer to the question of death, but he was happy to repeat it six times.

Happy Thursday!
