Yeah, I'd have the same trouble—when I write, I just try to avoid it... yeah, I know—Detective Conan without mystery? Hah! What are you thinking?! I guess I need to get my hands dirty, in terms of writing mysteries.
Best of luck to you!
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
“Education never ends... it is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
