Honestly, I have not worked diligently on this project and partly is because the main character is so personal and I want to honor every aspect of her personality. I want to assure that I convey enough of her life that the reader falls in love with her, just as I have.
At the beginning of April I was stuck. Total writers block. I knew the objective, but my brain would not contrive circumstances that made sense. And then while in a hot tub one day, I had an epiphany about including a sauna. I thought this would move the story along and give me more time to create tension and discord with my characters while allowing the calendar to tick away through the pages of the writing.
And then a very unexpected revelation came to me while riding the train in the morning. I could use the sauna as a tool in the murder. It is going to be perfect I am certain. But I couldn't stay home and write. So I made notes and I am obsessed these past few days. I wanted to post the status on facebook that I had figured out the murder and couldn't be happier! I snickered in public thinking how I would have to explain myself yet again but beamed knowing that only a writer would think in such terms.
