Okay, so yesterday evening I went to the Naperville Writers' Group and, afterwards, to the bar. This conversation ensued.
ME: I have this great idea for a locked-door murder mystery, ran it by a CSI friend of mine who said "Oh yeah, the cops would totally call that suicide with no further investigation," but I need [[LONG DISCOURSE ON WHAT THE STORY NEEDS FOR CLOSURE]].
TINA PATER: Huh. No, I got nothing. Though [[CONFIRMATION THAT MY PROPOSED MURDER METHOD IS FATAL VIA PERSONAL ANECDOTE]]. It doesn't take much.
ME: [[HALFBAKED, INCOMPLETE IDEA]]
TINA: [[TENTATIVE, INCOMPLETE SUGGESTION]]
ME: [[CRITICISM, DISCUSSION, NEGATIVITY]]
TINA: Wait! Wait, I got it! I got it! [[PERFECT SOLUTION TO CONUNDRUM]]!
ME: You're the best!
