Last night I started some background work on a new story titled “A Place In This World”. I have been struggling to work on “Facade” and “Lasting Shadow” and realized the last two stories really have been pulling on past experiences I really had rather not delve into at this point until I have gone through some therapy for certain things. So I thought I would start a new story and not pull on things from my past but create something brand new and go outside of what I know. Yeah, I know as a writer you’re always told “write what you know’. But where is the fun or adventure in that? Sometimes it is exciting and adventuresome to go outside the conventional box and discover things you may have never noticed otherwise. I have never written a mystery before so this is so new to me but I am excited! I figure since I love cop shows and criminal shows like CSI and NCIS, then why not try my hand at some mystery writing. I actually think it will be a mystery/romance, but we’ll see. I know my favorite kind of movies to watch are romantic comedies but I don’t think I am a comedian, but more of a sincere person. I started watching the show “Medium” on Netflix last night and wow! I so love the show. I am inspired by the show and happy to have found another cop like show. I have been watching them since I was a kid. I’ve never been sure what the lure is unless it is just the amazement of the people putting their lives on the line to keep others safe. I know I don’t have that kind of bravery. Kudos to those who do! And thank you!
Best of luck to all you writers out there!
