This is a Job for...

At the heart of all great detective stories is a great Detective (or group of) and thus there is an ocean full of novels, short stories, films and TV series to crawl through to find inspiration.

Luckily for me I write from a character stand point. That is, no character, no story. So when I got this idea it came generally from the idea of who the main characters were or could be, which means I could be very specific with the types of Detectives I look at for inspiration as well as techniques on who to write the development of such characters.

Two main things I know for sure: She is not you regular detective prototype. 2. She is a She.

I Have An Inkling...

So summer is here and its time to relax...

Right so now that's over with, it's back to work. I have had a tone of ideas floating around my head for a while now, but for the summer I decided to focus on something a bit more narrative orientated than the stuff I've been doing recently.

I was watching Michael Buble singing cry me a river recently which got me in the mood for some Film Noir, or more specifically a good Femme Fatale film. So I went to go and fetch Niagara and Don't Bother To Knock, but found that they had been lent out to someone and not returned. An this got me thinking; there really are not enough Femme Fatale films that float my boat, which is weird seeing as i adore a good Femme Fatale.

And so I had an inkling of an idea for a summer project. Something that features a killer Femme Fatale, or maybe even two or three...

So putting my uni skills into practice, let the research commence!
