What’s with the TDW?
I’m a crime writer so I guess it fits the trope that I have a crime blog. Though I like the whole dark and scary true crime thing I can’t stand the idea of yet another one of those showing up on the internet so the TDW? (They Did What?) is something a little different.
I have an exercise I do where I like to practice writing by creating a scene based on something I find in the news. I know the usual crime beat covers the dark stuff but more often than not I’m drawn to the most ridiculous crime stories I can find.
I write about capers committed by the dumbest, or maybe the most ingenious criminals you’ve never heard of. It entertains me. If it entertains you, great. If not, I’m sure there’s somebody sitting in their mom’s basement typing away about some serial killer you’ve read about a hundred times before too.
Anyway, check out the blog.
