Sometimes it pays to leave the house. I haven’t figured out how or where yet, but this place is totally making an appearance in my next novel.
Sometimes the best place to hide is in plain sight. A store called Time Bomb Trading can’t possibly sell time bombs…right? Imagine a character has something to hide, perhaps they are a super villain, a bank robber or criminal mastermind. What kind of business would they have to hide in plain sight? NB. I think Mastermind would be a great name for a gaming store. In the front, Warhammer figurines and six versions of Catan, in the back…cork board brainstorming to take over the world. Excellent.
Spend twenty minutes in your character’s place of business and write about what you find. Happy writing.
