The cock continues to crow. Here's two more pages. It takes about 13 pages, total. After that, I'll need an actual plot.
My older brother, Matt, provided the following as possible plot material:
There once was a rooster that was so vigorous in his ardor that it usually killed the recipient hen. When the hens were gone, the rooster went after the ducks. Then the geese. Nothing with feathers was safe. Then the rooster went after the livestock, chasing pigs and goats and cows from one end of the farm to the other. The farmer tried to catch him and wring his neck, but the rooster always slipped away.
One day, the farmer came out of his house and saw vultures circling over a field. "Aw, christ, who did that son of a gun kill this time?" thought the farmer. He hiked over to the field and saw the rooster sprawled out in the middle of the clearing. "Serves you right," said the farmer, "You finally screwed yourself to death. Let the buzzards have you."
The rooster opened one eye and whispered, "Shh. They're getting closer."
I think I could get a hundred and sixty or so pages out of that.
As far as naming the rooster: the votes are leaning towards Redwald. What do you think? I'd really like to hear some opinions.
