And now my editor has given me the okay on the synopsis for the tenth crochet mystery. I can’t wait to start writing it. In it, Molly and the Tarzana Hookers find a body. They don’t know who it is or how it got there. When I came up with the idea, I didn’t know the answer to either of those questions either. It was fun developing a plot around the idea and finding out (well, deciding is probably a more accurate word) who the person was and how they got where they were.
I couldn’t dive into writing as soon as I sent off the manuscript as I was busy with my other job. We put on two seminars this week. I put together all the materials (like printing over 1000 pages), make lots of phone calls, greet people when they arrive, set up appointments and follow up after the seminars. Because it is my family business, I care far more than if it was just a job.
But tomorrow I will begin writing. I look forward to getting into the middle of Molly’s life again. I really love having both of these careers going on.
A psychic told me that the older I got the better things would get (I was about 20 at the time). I think she might have been right.
