Last week I was writing a scene in my new novel, yet to be titled,…
Covid 19 has changed all our lives and also our intentions. I was planning to go to Europe, to repeat the journey I did as a broke 22 year old, to see what its like when can travel and not live on $10 a day. That is no longer a possibility for the foreseeable future, and as I like to turn negatives into positives, this is now an opportunity to start the write the sequel to “Reasons”. I was musing with a friend the other night, who asked my if COVID would feature in my novel, but I said no…..as it is set in 2015. However, I do wonder how many crime writers are going to use masks to hide identities, discredit witnesses and I am sure a whole heap of other ideas that an author could play around with and the protagonist can tease .
“Could you identify this man?” the lawyer asked
“Yes your honour..he had black hair and was wearing a lime green and white stripped mask with giraffes holding sunglasses and cocktails. It looked homemade as I could still see the inner lining from his underpants crutch!”
Doesn’t bear thinking about!!
