Everything is a Mystery

A number of us from my local writers’ guild just completed a challenge to observe our surroundings for ten days, and each day to come up with five potential novel ideas. At the end of the ten days, we were to turn the three best ideas into elevator pitches of fifty words or less and then submit them for judging. I thought this would be easy and was eager to participate. I just submitted my three best pitches, and let me tell you, it wasn’t so easy. But, I did learn a lot from the challenge and that makes me a winner regardless.

So, I have been in the house all day, and today my biggest mystery is where does Gizmo hide his toys. See, right here is a story idea that could become a children’s book, a romance, a comedy, or a paranormal sci-fi adventure. But in my hands, I already know, it will become a mystery.
