Is it Monday yet? I'm on holidays and had a nice sleep in, which means a delay in getting this great review up! My apologies.

 

Finding Refuge

Do you like a good cowboy story? Whether you do or not, I’m willing to bet you’ll enjoy this tale about two cowboys who’re in dire need of refuge. One is being hunted and has lost his best friend to the evil men following him. He and his trusted horse are on their last legs, thirsty and tired, when the story begins.

It’s difficult to describe the content without spoiling the delightful twist and turns, which are a wonderful part of the joy Gary’s short story gave me. But I think no one will be surprised to learn that, in true Headstall style, the heroes are decent, honest, gorgeous guys, who long for that one special person in their lives. Someone to trust, to love, and to share the dream of a home and a life filled with hard work, laughter and –ahem– hot man sex. :P  Not that there is any of the latter in this story. :( 

 

Maybe I’ll just share some of the enthusiastic comments from readers and let you discover the rest for yourself.

@Coastguard: I absolutely LOVE the way you write. I've always enjoyed cowboy stories, and this one was exceptionally well written!

@Zeke Pine: Sir, this story holds much potential. Should you decide to add to it, I will not miss a chapter.

@ColumbusGuy: Okay, I won't say I'm a fan of Westerns now, but you brought me durn close, I reckon.

@LitLover: Your approach to a traditional cowboy story was interesting and engaging, drawing me in from the first line.

@Albert1434: The whole time I read this I could hear the music from the Good the Bad and the Ugly playing in the back ground.

I wouldn't normally dream of reading a Western, but I took a chance on this one. It was @Headstall, after all. ;) I can remember enjoying it a lot, and even wishing there was more. :)

@Timothy M. Once again, thank you for this wonderful review of a story I keep going back to, and thank you for the review you just left on Finding Refuge. I wrote three entries for the Rewind anthology that winter, totalling over 30,000 words, and that was in the middle of writing Morningstar. I was stretched to the limits, but as you know, I love writing, and after completing the first two, this one just wouldn't go away. I'm so thankful I started the first paragraph, because after that I couldn't have stopped for anything. 

I remember, at that time, wanting to get more experience at writing shorter stories, and in the process I learned they can be as satisfying as writing longer, multi-chapter stories, and this one is the perfect example of that for me. Anyway, I guess I'm being reflective as I prepare for surgery on my shoulder. I miss my previous productivity, and with a little luck and a good surgeon, I hope I can get back to it. I want to thank you for your friendship, and your support, Tim. You are a blessing to me and GA. :hug:

We hope your surgery goes well too, Gary, and that writing will once more become easy, as least physically.

Thank you for the kind words :blushing:  and for your encouragement when I thought I'd never get back to writing. :hug:
