Where Are The Good Stories?

If you’re looking for inspiration for your story, stop and look around. Everything you need is all around you.

I’m lucky because I live in Florida. And, since I’m writing a crime novel, I couldn’t possibly live in a better place. Yeah, Florida is that wacky and I love it. This state has all sorts of criminals. Some are smart, while most are stupid. Don’t get me wrong; they’re all evil. And look at some of the writers who have made a living from Florida crime. Tim Dorsey, Carl Hiaasen, and Elmore Leonard.

But look around. You don’t need to live in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles for inspiration. And I’m not belittling those cities. I think that a lot of times the best crimes stories don’t take place in big cities. The small town is so much creepier.
