Cindy Lou Moldovan Cindy Lou Moldovan's blog:
So many great reasons to read and countless books to choose from. I find that reading seems to have a calming effect on me. Sometimes if I am having difficulty concentrating on writing, I take a long walk somewhere quiet with a book or magazine and read. Somehow that seems to refresh my memory an...

It seems to me there is a famous quote out there that says something to the affect, “Time always wins in the end.” I’m sure the actual quote is much more eloquent and makes you say, “Oh, I know that one.” It’s one of those sayings that sounds preposterous until you give it some thought.

So here’s what I think makes a good ” mystery” book or movie: an intriguing question is asked at the beginning of a story (typically about a murder, but not always). Over the course of that story, the main character gathers clues. Some of these clues may be dead-ends, but even they help the chara...
