I asked one of my fellow Mysterians for a consult on my upcoming projects, but I believe I’ve figured out what to do without the consult. When I ask for help as I did, it sets my own mental mill to grinding. Eventually, organically but not analytically, the answers surface of their own accord. That’s what happened when I asked for help; it set me to subconsciously working the problem out for myself. I think I’ve got it now.
I’m applying for an arts grant, and I’ll be applying for the grant to work on Mystery Mastery, a how-to on writing mysteries. The embezzlement story I’ve been playing around with will serve for this November’s NaNoWriMo effort. My other projects will proceed in their own orderly fashion.
