Can you get jetlag from a bus tour? That idea seems weird to me, but my head is spinning from the 14-Day MURDER WE WRITE BLOG TOUR that ended yesterday. Each day we played musical-blogs and moved from one Mystery Writer’s site to another. It was wild, but I’m declaring it a success because when we climbed off the bus no one was bleeding.
Earl Staggs was driving, by the way, and that guy knows how to take a curve. These Texans all use a heavy foot, and we really booked it.
I never dreamed that I’d take a 2-week trip with 14 other people, much less 14 writers. As I’ve said before, writers are a little different kind of cat. We can’t help it. Something in our DNA tells us that we must record what we see. We’re compelled to write down all sorts of things in the way we see them. Each member of our Team could take the same basic plot, and using our own characters, we would each spin a different story.
That’s what brings magic into writing. And into reading.Here’s the whole bunch, along with their blog addresses:
