Our mystery writing group finally has a name: Mystery Mavens. We met on Thursday, this month, with Mahrie Reid, mystery writer and teacher, who answered our current questions, and more. In addition, we had a lovely meal and more than one glass of wine! Now I am doing the “becauses” for my novel. For each scene, I am writing why the key events happen, so they are part of a causal chain, rather than by coincidence or left-field. Almost done!
