Thank you for sharing that, dcp! I think all of us have thoughts like that at one time or another, that just sort of burrow and stay, until you make some sense of them.
I especially liked the driving one, because driving (no traffic, windows down, music on) is one of my pleasures.
That was lovely, dcp. Thanks for sharing with us.
Hey back, Cindy. Popping in again to see what I missed, and I have to recommed Bird by Bird by Annie Lammott. It is possible I have used too many double letters in rendering her name but I'm too lazy to look it up. Some of her later work has value, but the Goldberg and the Bird book were helpful.
If anyone's interested in doing Artists' Way, I have a new, shrinkwrapped boxed kit thing, and a nearly-new book, yours for the cost of postage. Profile's good.
DCP, I sat with that poem for a while. It's very visual, very visceral, and breathtaking, in a way that recalls the sensation of velocity and the exhilaration of controlling forward movement. It speaks to me. Thank you for sharing it.
Thank you all for the kind words. Six months on, and I still have mixed feelings about having posted it.
I tried The Artist's Way, but my life is, like, this huge messy blob that I don't really run on a good day, and then I have to find a way to seduce my muse...like the thought, but kinda don't think so.
Anyway, I'm here cause I'm bad at plotting.
What might a newbie candidate(who's also my character's annoying college close-to-frenemy that she hasn't seen in years) want a private investigator to look into?
What might a newbie candidate...want a private investigator to look into?
These are categories rather than specific ideas, but here is what came to mind:
- opposition research
- own party research
- vetting campaign donors
- vetting staff
- scandal claims
- vetting family
- vetting alleged family
- vetting significant others
Which would fit your story? Which allows for the most mis-leads and twists?
a lot of choices here, especially for people who knew each other previously...thanks, Dan.
