You're IT!

I've been tagged again. This time over at Violet Voices. The meme is: A Novel Idea:
If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be? (Just the subject–don’t give away your plot idea!)
Or, if just the thought of having to write anything gives you hives, what would you like to read about in a novel that you’ve never seen done before?
Or if you hate reading fiction (you can get counseling for that, you know), what subject might make you change your mind or try it anyway?

First you answer on your own blog, and then tag five other women. Sorry this is women only in keeping with the theme of Violet Voices, extraordinary women.

Of course I have explored some of the themes I wanted in my first novel, and I'm exploring some I don't want to explore in my second. (Will have to explain that later.) But I have a list of things I'd like to write about, and one of them is forensic science. I'm overly intrigued with CSI and Body of Evidence. I think I would have made a great detective if not for the gore factor. I love solving puzzles. I know Brandilyn Collins is the Queen of seatbelt suspense, but I suspect there's room for more in that genre. Everyone loves a thriller.

I tag Diane at Prayersforourprodigals, Mugwumpum Mom, Delia, Tammy, and Holy Mama!

I'll have to give that some thought...while I have dreamed of writing a teaching book never a novel..hmmmm...will post it and let you know as soon as I have "something"...hahahah writers block already!

Oh, goodie! You played, you played! Thank you so much!!!!! :)

Delia said...

I love CSI, too. Though I don't know if I could ever write anything suspenseful. Lol, I'd end up giving away the answer within the first chapter. And to me, a good suspenseful novel is one that holds you in the suspense.

Anywho, I did this at my blog. Thanks for tagging me!

I did your meme...
Hope you're having a good day so far!

Meredith said...

Cindy, I think you're right--there's tons more room for good thrillers. Go for it! :) Thanks for playing!

Just stopped by to say "hey!" since Diane linked to your site from her guest post on my blog.

It's good to "meet" you! I noticed you mentioned Brandily--are you in ACFW? With over 1000 members now, it's hard to keep up with them all!

This is my second tag for this!!!
I told Delia I will do it Sunday evening and post it Monday as I am very busy right now with Hubby off and such!
