I CAN NEVER KILL MY HUSBAND OR...HOW AUTHORS THINK...

This post can also be titled LIFE WITH A WRITER...

So we're at Pacific Ocean Producers because I had this vision of TOOLOOSE falling off the boat into the water and I thought, Hey! Let's get a big net just in case and um...
There were these fish bags and um...
I thought, gee wouldn't those be perfect to put a dead body inside...
Of course you'd have to see if they fit.
NOTE: They come in 4,5,6,7 and 8 foot lengths.
They are rather expensive ($190 - $300) but yanno price is no object if you want to kill your husband...or...er...um...write about it. Yeah. That's right.
It's research honey.
Entirely research.

This is so funny!! And true!! One of my crit partners writes crime fiction, and she is always coming up with stuff like this.

Once, she was following a truck that was piled high in the bed with ice. In the summer. Her first thought was that he was hiding a body in there.

Then the dumpster behind her work was suddenly infested with maggots and strange garbage bags. She called the police because she thought there was a dead, mutilated body chopped up in there.

So yeah... we writers have warped imagination. But whatever it takes, right? :)

Loved this post! It's funny as we see things.

My husband and I were biking the other day through a wooded area and he said, "I bet if we followed that trail over there, we would find" and I cut him off and said "A dead body?"

"No," he replied. "A pretty view."

LOL - We think differently apparently.

I have this creeper of a neighbor, in the rented house, next door to me who has no trash pick up. Instead he piles his trash in black trash bags in the back of a primered, unplated, beater of a truck on his turn around driveway; in the rear of the house. That house is all closed up (every window sealed with drawn blinds), never a light on at night and he has a video camera in his front window. We always joke that he has dead bodies in those trash bags. Why else wouldn't he have trash service? Creepy huh!?

By the time the book gets published, the body will be completely decomposed. As long as TOOLOOSE doesn't tell them where you dumped it, you're home free.

I see a glorious sunset with pink romantic clouds. The wife sees that it's getting dark.
