Thank you all for the kind words. Six months on, and I still have mixed feelings about having posted it.

Stet.

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?

A political candidate?

These are categories rather than specific ideas, but here is what came to mind:

Political

  • opposition research
  • own party research
  • vetting campaign donors
  • vetting staff
  • extortion/blackmail/threats
  • scandal claims

Personal

  • vetting family
  • vetting alleged family
  • vetting significant others
  • extortion/blackmail/threats

Which would fit your story? Which allows for the most mis-leads and twists?
