With rumours of My Weekly Story Collection going weekly there could be far more opportunities to get our stories out there. I have never written a crime story but I presume they would not have to be too gritty although obviously more edgy than say a light romance.
I could not write a medical romance, being woefully deficient in my knowledge of the world of doctors and nurses, but I lived in a village for many years and could perhaps do a 'cosy' murder along the lines of Murder She Wrote or Midsomer Murders.
Of course there would have to be a hero and heroine and I presume a love interest but I think it will be a new challenge that we should embrace. The scope is all encompassing. I should imagine there are no taboos apart of course from anything too graphic.
Crime can also mean theft. Perhaps a priceless jewel or someone's identity? The long lost daughter coming back to claim an inheritance? Is she who she says she is?
I think I may very well have a go at 'something different'.
How does everyone else feel about excercising those 'little grey cells'?
