Writing in a Mystery Wonderland

by Shari Randall

To the tune of "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
with apologies to Felix Bertand and Richard B. Smith


Writing in a Mystery Wonderland

Slaybells ring! Are you listening?
In the lane, blood is glistening.
A criminal sight, we're sleuthing tonight
Writing in a mystery wonderland.

Gone away is the body,
Here to stay is the bobby
As we start the chase
To solve a tough case
Writing in a mystery wonderland.

In the story we will solve a murder
And pretend that we are Sheriff Brown.
He'll say "Are you guilty?" We'll say "No, man!"
But you can arrest my evil twin when you're in town.

Later on, we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid
The plot that we made
Writing in a mystery wonderland!

Hi Kait, a really good writer's conference is a joy indeed!

Hi Gloria, it is a catchy tune - one of my favorites.
