Novel research trip

Day 1: On The Road

First location. Really!

Ryan's Hotel, Traralgon

I’m thinking more exotic locations for my third novel. New York? Paris? Maybe Detective Aidan could go visit his relatives in Italy …

Bairnsdale Court House

Second location: Bairnsdale Court House

I was half-expecting to find Detective Aidan sitting on the porch with a beer in his hand. No — just a koala.

 

Day 2: The Old Middle-aged Man Woman And The Sea Lakes

Should have bought my swimmers! Almost forgot: It’s not a holiday.

Day 3: The Shining?

Whenever you hear me typing …

 Day 4: The Road

Finally found a location round the back of the island for the shooting scene.

Gravelly Point Road. Very gravelly.

The sea was angry that day, my friends.

Look who’s here. Hooray! Another writer. Amy Jasper.

Day 4: Please Don’t Leave Me Here (had to get that one in)

Bye-bye, my annoying little friend (lay off the potato chips for a while).

 

 

 

 

 

 

And farewell to my imaginary story-friends who will forever live in this place.

    I love this! And about the New York/Paris option…might just check that out. I can’t quite see Natalie there, but maybe my next character…

      I’m actually thinking either Cradle Mountain or Far North Queensland.
      Next character? Intriguing. I don’t think Detective Aidan will be coming back for a third — not for love nor money. Well, maybe money.
