WAIT! Please put down your cell. Don’t call the police just yet.
It’s not what you think. Please let me explain.
As I was washing dishes today, I began plotting a murder.
No, I wasn’t mad at my family for not helping to wash the dishes; they do like my cooking so that wasn’t it either.
As I was washing, Haylee sauntered up to me mentally. This is a part of our conversation.
“You know she has to die.”
“Yes, I know she has to die.”
“How am I going to kill her? You know I have to kill her, right?”
“Yes, I know you have to do it.”
“She’s already tried to kill me,” she paused, and shifted her weight, “Where am I going to do it?”
“I was thinking the cemetery would be interesting.”
“Hmmm, might work,” she said nodding.
We continued with our plotting as I finished washing, then I sat at the computer.
Agatha Christie once said:
“The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes.”
If you write, when do you plot/plan your story?
P.S. The title idea for this book is on my Facebook page. Go tell me what you think. Or you’ll have to wait for a few days.
