Well, I am about to hit the 200 page mark and felt as though it was down hill from there. The rest was going to write itself. It was going great guns and I was very happy with the book. I knew a couple of things would need some tweaking but that it was going good.

For the past few weeks, I have been madly writing away on my first novel. After a welcomed break from true crime, I was finding it extremely easy to write a crime fiction. Then last night disaster struck.

I am more well-known in true crime and Ripperology circles. Though if my first crime fiction gets picked up I might be a well known mystery writer too I guess.
Let's hope that is an omen.
I have no desire to write the Great American Novel--satisfied at present to write to the editors of local papers.
However, for some reason I "enjoy" reading about serial killers. So far as I know I have never encountered any.
Thanks for the welcome Karen. Thank you for adding me as a friend.
