Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a plot? Leave one
Need a plot ? Take one
A good mystery always has a twist. A popular version of this is the character living the "double life". The perfect wife and mother turns out to be a government spy. The all-American husband turns out to be a psychotic killer. So, today, let's talk about the double life.
Here are some examples I have for you:
A football coach executed by an assassin in front of his two friends in a park may have been targeted because of his secret life as a drug debt enforcer,
During the day, she is an immigration attorney. By night she is a scintillating jazz vocalist whose eclectic repertoire reflects her roots.
They say pictures do not lie, but there are dozens, hundreds, or maybe even thousands of pictures of the man called Clark Rockefeller, and police say they all lied - because the smiling man in the photos was not whom he claimed to be.
So, swap with me!
What is your favorite "double life" plot?
If you were going to lead a double life, what would your other life be?
This is a GREAT idea Dawn! I wish I was feeling creative enough before my day job here to offer a plot to share. But if it comes to me later today, I'll pop back in. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else suggests. Also, I loved your interview on Keli Gwyn's blog. Love that you used to write "novels" bound with brads. You sound like me. Except I used wire notebooks.
What about a mild mannered (okay, maybe occassionally obnoxious) soccer mom and science geek by day, with a secret life as a romance writer?
Yeah, that's fascinating. Okay. So maybe she gets sucked into some sort of thing where she gets stalked, and murdered, and her family doesn't even know that she's been writing and blogging and stuff, and then...
Hi Lana! Thanks for stopping by! We do this every Friday so if you. Feel free to swap with us any time.
Teri~ Hmm, that story sounds familiar...well, not the stalking and dying part.
By day she works for a travel magazine, going all over the world, sleeping in the best hotels, relaxing at the most expensive spas, and eating incredible food.
By night she's an international jewel thief with a perfect alibi.
Because, I'd like to do both! lol
Jessica~ Love it! That would be the life. Except, ya know, the whole getting caught and going to prison thing.
By day she's a simple housewife, but after she puts the kids to bed and hands the husband the remote, she puts on her tennis shoes and walks the neighborhood with binoculars, a camera, and a whole arsenal of other equipment necessary to her profitable hobby - blackmail.
Regina~ Ooh, I like it! Thanks for sharing.
