Sure, lots! The most important thing? Never give up. If you want to be a writer, make that your priority and stick to it.

Other important things: learn all you can - go to workshops, read lots of fiction in your genre, study resources on writing (my fave is "Shut Up!" He Explained, on writing dialogue), join writers' organizations, attend workshops, meet other writers, and find or create a critique group. Get feedback. Good luck!(less)

A new exhibit was about to open, and we were treated to detailed descriptions of the process of locating and ordering traveling exhibits, shipping them, storing them, uncrating them, hanging them, insuring their safety, and repacking them.

You must know by now that hubs is a criminologist by profession. It didn’t take us long to be looking for vulnerable spots in the museum’s process, and by the end of the day, with a little internet research on the high stakes world of stolen paintings, we had our basic plot sketched out.

Our next problem was—what painting should be stolen? Clearly, we couldn’t go with an existing well-known piece of art. We opted to create The Three Maids, an entirely fictional trio of medium sized Impressionist portraits, based on what we knew about Monet, Manet, Renoir, Caillebotte, and the women they painted. We’ve put so much detail into the paintings’ descriptions that I keep expecting to see them when I enter an Impressionist display. If no one has painted them yet, I definitely think someone should!(less)
