Of Anti-Block and Sea Monsters
So today as I sat down to write on a project called CEMETERY TREE I found myself researching sea and lake monsters such as that allegedly prowling the depths of Loch Ness. (*Photo credit to FreeDigitalPhotos.net and Victor Habbick).
As you can tell from the name, Cemetery Tree has nothing to do with monsters...of the water variety anyway. Nevertheless, I am researching "the surgeons photograph", plesiosaurs, and cryptozoology. I'm thinking of names for my own FICTIONAL lake monster (Messie is the current favorite) and I have a fictional lake name to insert into the Lake District of England for use as a setting. I'm plotting a romantic mystery where monster sightings spur murder.
Sound fun? Yeah. Now I just need to write the dang thing before the next idea comes into my head and I dart off in the direction of a newer and shinier plot.
