Here is an old dusty trunk in a cobwebbed filled attic, it has been abandoned for years. Maybe there is a priceless antique inside, who knows? Maybe it is stuffed with money or a dead body. Curiosity gets the best of you and you decide to open it … and it the portal to another world.

This is how I describe how to write a novel. You have to go to the places nobody wants to go. You have to open that old trunk up and see what is inside….

That is just my advice ….

That is my two cents worth and you can keep the change …
