WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

  

As a writer, I get this question a lot. I don't mind because it means the person asking is genuinely curious. Then there are moments where the question sparks something interesting.

I generally store plot points, scenes, and ideas in my head (sometimes on the laptop). I don't always know what story or character they fit with and sometimes they don't fit any, but they're in there. I was talking with my chiropractor today (I tweaked my back earlier this week and needed an adjustment) and the the notion of where ideas come from came up. I mentioned that the third Tom Myers Mystery will open with a scene based on a real event that happened not far from where I live. That scene is the catalyst that kicks off the story.

I also mentioned a plot that's been percolating for about five years now based on some news reports I heard about seemingly unrelated murders, but not so out there to see how they could be. I tucked the idea away. Not sure when or where, or if, I would use it.

On the drive home, my brain kept replaying that particular plot until I realized that is wasn't it's own separate plot, but part of a plot for a novel I'm just starting to put together. Once I realized the connection, the story exploded.

And this is why I love my job.

This is the magic of writing.

THE WRAP UP-- MONSTERAMA/SPY-CON 2021!

  

I had an absolutely amazing weekend at the Monsterama/Spy-Con convention just outside of Atlanta. This is one of my favorite cons. It's small enough to be laid back, but is packed with wonderful panels and events. The guest list was also a lot of fun and I met some cool new people. It was also nice to see some friends I haven't seen in person for a couple of years or more now. It was like a big ol' geeky reunion and I loved every minute of it. Big shout out to the fine folks who run the con and the panel track directors. I had a great time and even sold a book or two, which is always a nice bonus.

I don't know dates for next year yet, but if you like monsters, spies, or a combination thereof, this is the con for you. It's one combined con, but check out the sites for Monsterama and Spy-Con for updates.

Sadly, I didn't take a lot of photos. My bad there. I also forgot to take H.E.R.B.I.E. the Muse with me and he really wanted to meet the Lost in Space robot. Maybe next time, pal.
