Into The Home Stretch, If I Don't Lose My Mind First



Okay, it’s going to be a short post today, because I am slowly losing my mind! Well maybe not slowly if I don't figure this out.
I hate it this happens.
I’m stuck on a plot point, and it’s just not any plot point, oh no. It’s the plot point that makes the whole plot point in the right direction to solve the mystery plot.
Sorry, got carried away with the plots and points there.
Now normally, I would talk this out with someone, but I can’t do that here because it’s really, really critical to the plot, and if I tell anyone it will give the whole thing away.
I mean Chasing Lady Midnight is done, ready to go to the beta readers and then on to publishing, except for this one thing. The one thing that if I get it wrong, will mess up the whole plot! Trust me, I’m a writer. I know these things.
I am  going have to do a lot of praying.
I don’t mean to complain, but when I do these fantastic story lines (hey this is cozy mystery with superheroes) it has to make sense to me. Because if it doesn’t make sense to me no else is going to get it. I can’t just throw something in that makes no sense. Even though it doesn’t exist, like super powered people running around in spandex, it still has to be logical in the world I built. The “because I said so” that my mother was so fond of just won’t cut it. 
However, since people will spend money on this book, at least I hope they will, be assured that I will figure this out.
Of course once I get this book done  I have to figure what a Woolley Weegie is.
It never ends.


Mystery writer C.L. Ragsdale is the author of The Reboot Files a Christian Cozy Mystery Series, and a superhero story called Chasing Lady Midnight. A California native, she loves to "surf" the web to research plot details for her fun, quirky stories. She has a degree in Theatre Arts which greatly influenced her writing style. Working in various fields as a secretary has allowed her to both master her writing skills and acquire valuable technical knowledge which she uses liberally in her plots. Although that is where she got her idea for The Secretary, she is not an evil mastermind. Although some of her former employers might disagree. These days she contents herself with knitting while contemplating her next diabolical plot. Story plot that is.
