Another chance to stretch as a writer as I have never written a mystery.
Looks like we're heat mates!

Why not set your piece in ancient Rome, make the main character a plumber trying to solve a problem or devise some "new" plumbing method, and have the whole thing go awry when... someone... invades. If you wanted to infuse PolSat into it, the invaders might be in need of "the facilities," only to have plumber guy tell them they are for Roman citizen only.

Thought.

Damn. What I wouldn't give for a punchy political satire right now.

Who said a Historical Fiction couldn't also be a political satire? TONS of fodder in history for a blend like that, I think. Big smile

Hey, round 1 heat-mate! :) Looks like we're in different heats this time, but I got Action/Adventure, which isn't too far off Thriller. How are things going with you this time around? I'm finally nailed down on a story idea and just have to write it. LOL

Heat 2: Action/adventure / reputation / a groundskeeper

LOL - Hey there, heat-mate! Groundskeeper Willy, that's hilarious. Thank goodness I didn't read this until *after* I finally came up with an idea, or I'd never have been able to get past that visual. LOL

A second heat-mate! Cool!

Wicked! A third heat-mate! Can't go wrong with Caddyshack. LOL

This one almost lends itself to humor. Is it me, or is this combo actually kind of tough??? I mean, groundskeeper almost feels like the opposite of action/adventure. Tongue
