Mystery Writer’s Toolbox Program

Toolbox 001

On Thursday, January 8, 2015, from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 Noon at the Winnetka Community House, Winnetka, Illinois, Richard Davidson will present at Off-Campus Writers’ Workshop (OCWW):

“The Mystery Writer’s Toolbox”

Dick’s workshop will cover a wide variety of formatting and storytelling aids designed to simplify the construction of a mystery novel and enhance its impact on the reader, with specific clues about the way to approach the development of a new mystery, comparing his techniques with those of several other writers. If time permits there may be a brainstorming exercise for mystery development.

Richard Davidson is the author of the self-help guidebook: DECISION TIME! Better Decisions for a Better Life. He has written the five novels that comprise the Lord’s Prayer Mystery Series: Lead Us Not into Temptation, Give Us this Day our Daily Bread, Forgive Us Our Trespasses, Thy Will Be Done, and Deliver Us from Evil. He has edited an anthology, Overcoming: An Anthology by the Writers of OCWW, and he has had pieces included in the last two annual anthologies published by the Military Writers Society of America. His latest novel, Implications, continues to chronicle the exploits of Arthur Blake and the investigative associates who aided him in the earlier mystery series. It is the first volume in a new series, The Imp Mysteries.

Dick will accept manuscripts for critique, but will comment on them in writing, to the author, because the body of material to be covered in his main program is large. Please follow the submission guidelines on the website: ocww.bizland.com. Dick will not have time available for in-session discussions of manuscripts during the workshop.

Richard Davidson, Author

ImageOne of the easiest places to catch up with my latest thinking is my Richard Davidson, Author page on FaceBook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Richard-Davidson-Author/211578652220873?ref=hl – I invite you to frequent this page and “Like” it so that FB will show you new posts there. The photo above is from a recent post on that page and shows me pretending to be a jet fighter pilot at the EAA Airventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I am a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association, and I toy with including some aspect of their annual airshow in one of my mystery novels. Note the slight deviation from believability in the photo above – the electrical socket on the wall behind me.
