Try This With Your Right Foot!

Okay, so this isn't exactly writing related, but it is something you can do while waiting for your muse.

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. While doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction. Seriously, it will!

If you're like me, you'll keep trying this over and over to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't; it's preprogrammed in your brain. This info is supposedly from an orthopedic surgeon. Now, get back to writing.

April Sleuth's Meeting

I enjoyed the program last Saturday. It is intesting and informative to learn things out of your comfort zone and experience. It is always nice to have lunch with you guys and listen to the chatter.

Have the current pirates on the high seas given any one story ideas?

Shirley is doing a good job keeping the interest up and we are having great meetings. Thanks Shirley.

Favorite Book From Your Writing Library

I'm sure all writers have an extensive library of writing and forensic books. Pick one favorite from your collection and tell us the name of the book, the author, and why you think it's a valuable tool for a writer to have. I'm sure we'll all discover a new book or two for our own libraries.

Since I've said that we can only pick one, I'll start with one of my favorites.

Forensic For Dummies, by D.P. Lyle is filled with easy-to-understand information from checking for fingerprints and DNA, to investigating crime scenes and understanding the various stages the body goes through at death.
