Starting from scratch

Okay, I'm still trying to get traction on not one, but two, new books. Starting is hard!

This past year, I taught a mystery writing class at my local bookstore. And I decided to go back and see what I told my students. Like "Set a goal for your character and keep raising the stakes." That seems doable.

I'm also going to go through all the fodder I've collected over the past 20 years - a whole filing cabinet drawer of articles. Something in there is bound to spark an idea.
