since i turned fifty i've become possessed by some insane notion that i must write a mystery novel. i've written 380 pages of ms but have become totally and completely stuck. hoping that getting involved in a writers community will help me move forward and finish my novel.

Books And Authors I Like:
love just about all fiction that is well-written with solid characters and a gripping plot. love true crime fiction too.

How very good to reconnect! I'm on the west coast, teaching sculpture at the University of Victoria. It's a bit of a long story & perhaps not quite right for this forum (some slight irony in that sentence), but do you have a regular email address? I'm at Laskarin@uvic.ca and would really enjoy hearing what you've been doing for the past . . . 32 or so years.
sorry didn't see you wrote back to me.
it's a long hard slog--but let's keep slogging!
when I get stuck somewhere i literally write up a sheet wherein I discuss what's wrong and what needs to be done, then I go and edit it.
would that help?
try different things greta, you're nearly there!
I have two full drafts that I had to complete before I even got the story I wanted!
and I'll keep doing it. you too!
all the best.
It moved me forward!
I came onto this site last year, and am on my third draft.
When I joined up in July 07, I didn't have a CLUE!
Had absolutely no idea what to write about even!
But coming on here and reading discussions and replying to them and starting your own--well! It does help Greta!
welcome and good look.
you came to the right place!
