>Plotting, Planning and Polishing

>I have just seen what I blogged about immediately after my summer holidays began last year. Late June seems to be my time for plotting.

First of all I intend to polish an old crime manuscript and send it off to a publisher, probably in August.

Second I need a new project to work on. I am considering a cosy mystery written in English.

My working title: The Cosy Knave.

My preliminary ideas:

Setting: a tiny Yorkshire village called Knavesborough. “The Cosy Knave” is the local tea house.

Detective and sidekick (or vice versa): Constable Archibald Primrose and his fiancé Rhapsody Gershwin, the local vicar´s daughter.

Time: June and July 2010. The drama begins when someone dies during the World Cup match between England and Germany.

Characters: you may meet people you have met before such as Constable Archibald Prewitt (now Primrose) and Arnold and Mildred Kickinbottom.

If you read cosies, does this sound like something for you?
