Draft 2 get my thumbs up! I am pulled into the sheriff's dilemma..a little bitty nail or a big 'ol spike? And who the heck is interupting? I have to read more.

Four for four! Where's Brandon? We need a contrarian view.

AmyC said...

Liked it. But it made me hungry. And now I'm emotionally invested in his ability to consume the ribs. Please let him eat the ribs!

Like it! I want to read more. Love the threes!

Brad Whittington said...

AmyC: I'm 20,000 words in and he hasn't eaten the ribs, yet. We'll find out in a few months.

Anonymous #3: I'm partial to the threes, myself. However, I think the second draft may have overdone them. We'll see how it looks in draft three. Heh.

Love your flow, the rhythm of your words. Smooth and snappy as jazz.

Brad Whittington said...

So, I guess you'd turn the page. ;-)

Hmm. I like the comment "smooth and snappy as jazz". Very nice. And a thumbs up on Muffin Man, draft 2. I totally empathize with his dilemma and the radio interruption that saves the day or cheats him out of his soul-food. Or does it?

Brad Whittington said...

Exactly. We'll have to wait until 2012 to find out how the soul food affected his soul.

Hey, he's a south Texas sheriff, where beef ribs rule, Ms Memphis.
