..of writing Crown Court Killer
Writing in a pandemic. Being creative during ‘interesting and traumatic’ times is difficult at best. Difficult feels like such an understatement for what writing in the past two years has been like.
Burn out. (See above) A combination of the pandemic and personal life stuff hit me really hard right about the time I began writing Crown Court Killer. It made the entire process a lot harder than usual.
A complex murder plot involving a lot more moving parts than I usually deal with.
Uncooperative characters who further complicated a complex plot. My characters often run amuck (amuck is such a good word.) But they definitely had mind of their own in Crown Court Killer.
Another story calling my name. I won’t lie; I spent a lot of the time thinking about Purloined Poinsettia, Motts’s next adventure. It’s hard to work on one mystery when another is loudly screaming at your muse.
