I sent a request to my newsletter subscribers and I’m going to open it up to you too!
I’ve been seeing something travel through social media – #AndThenTheMurdersStarted – and I thought it would be fun to write a short story based on one of these ideas. Here’s all you have to do – submit your suggestion for the first line of the story in the comments, followed of course by “and then the murders started.” I’ll gather all of the ideas and write a short story to send to my newsletter subscribers in July. So if you aren’t on my newsletter list, take a minute to sign up so you can get the story too!
That’s it! Let’s write a mystery!
What I’m Reading
My 9 year-old niece is staying with me and she loves to read so when school let out, she and I went to the library and signed her up for one of my favorite past-times when I was 9, the summer reading program. Our library even has an adult reading program so my niece, my husband and I all signed up. We’re taking 20+ minutes at the end of our day to turn off all the electronics (except my Kindle) and READ. I’ve read 3 or 4 books in the week since we started, catching up on my “to read” slush pile. Follow me on Goodreads to see what I’m reading.
