San Luis Obispo Nightwriters Visit
It's been a long time since I visited the SLO Nightwriters. That will change as I head over there for a presentation on August 8, at 6 p.m. The location is the Untied Church of Christ of San Luis Obispo, on 11245 Los Osos Valley Rd. in San Luis Obispo.
My topic will be "How to Write a Mystery".
After a brief talk (with handouts) on the various kinds of mysteries and ways to write one, we'll embark on planning one of our own.
I love doing this--folks come up with the best ideas. I've done it many times, with readers and writing groups, and with school kids, 3rd grader through seniors. Little kids have the wildest ideas, high schoolers like to use school staff for their characters--easy to tell who they like and who they don't.
In any case, it's a fun event. If you're in the area do come out and see what we're up to.
And as usual, I'll have some of my books with me, especially my two latest ones in each series.
Both books are available from the usual places in trade paperback and electronically.
