>C should be for Crime, not Cleaning or Cooking


I am still circling around in Yorkshire, trying to add a bit of suspense to my Halloween mystery. I quite like my set of quirky villagers, but if they have secrets, they guard them far too well.

The funny thing is that last year I told a writer that she had painted her protagonist into a corner, meaning that she had created a setting that didn´t give the poor woman room, and now I have done exactly the same for Rhapsody. I have sent her off to a new cottage in order to clean and paint it – and the sweet, young woman does exactly what she has been told (some of the time, at least). Is it fun to cook or clean a dirty cottage? No. Is it fun to read about it? No. 

So changes will have to happen, but so far I have sent her off to the local pub – again. If she develops an alcohol problem or something, it´s all my fault.

And here a citation

Wisteria Featherstone wore a flowing silk dress in several blue and turquoise shades. Opposite her sat a slim, young man in a leather jacket who looked good in a slightly feminine way, but there was an angry set to his shoulders, and his lower lip protruded ominously.
