Just a quick post to say that I’m finally back from our adventure at Hidden Valley Ranch near Pecos, New Mexico. It was a hoot and I loved every minute of it. (Well, except for that one minute when I nearly perished in an unsatisfying manner, but I’ll get around to sharing that nugget of not-good in a future post.)
Whilst I play catch-up with the comments and whatnot, I thought I’d share the above photo. It was taken in the actual Murder Cabin, wherein Partner and I and Bubbles were dwelling during our stay. I like how the sunlight both revealed and hid what might be happening. More importantly, it cemented an idea in my head on the origin story behind the murder mystery that I have been promising to write for two years but I haven’t actually done so.
It’s all clicking now. Those of you who write profusely know exactly what I’m talking about, that one significant nudge that crystalizes the vision. Now I just need to align the planets, so to speak.
In the interim (because it will most likely take me forever to get around to writing the story that I keep promising to write), let’s make this a bit of an imagination prompt for compositions on your own blogs.
Why are the chairs empty?
What is happening just outside the window?
Why is this known as the Murder Cabin?
And who the hell designed those atrocious curtains?
Dazzle me with your explanations. I’m still aligning the plot-point planets in my head, and you just might tempt me to include your analysis in my Perilous Pecos Plot.
