Guest Blog: Judy Hogan on Trusting the Muse in Writing Mysteries — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks, Carolyn. It came out beautifully. I’m glad it will be on Goodreads, too. My own blogs are. Recently on a panel I said that I wrote what I wished to write, and another crime writer, who is published by the biggies looked at me as if I were crazy. She spends a lot of time making sure her publisher is happy! Judy Hogan

  2. Judy, Thank you for your wise and inspiring words. I have read and reread Elizabeth George’s book Write Away and try to follow her advice on creating characters. Congratualtions on your latest book.

  3. I enjoyed every word of this heartfelt post. I’m happy to say I just finished reading a mystery by Josephine Tey (Miss Pym Disposes). I savored it over several evenings and posted my thoughts on my blog. Ms. Tey had her own way of writing a mystery, and we’re so so much richer for it!

  4. Thank you, Mary Ann and C.T. So glad you liked my thoughts on writing. I love Josephine Tey, too, and have reread all her mysteries. Sometimes I go back to my favorite Golden Age writers and read their whole opus, using interlibrary loan to get ones my Durham library doesn’t have. Our deeper mind–unconscious–can be used for so much! Judy Hogan
