Humans are creatures of habit.
Need a French Cruller? The closest donut shop pops up in our head and we go. We know how to get there, we know what roads to take, what turns to make. No thought needed before “BAM!” we’re there, fried doughnut all over our faces.
A Cozy Mystery writer must play to these habits.
Send your readers blindly to their favorite donut shop… only to hijack them on their way.
Be sneaky. It’s ok. You might even reward yourself with a French Cruller after.
