Climactic scene = girdle

I’m writing the synopsis/outline for a cozy mystery for Guideposts, and trying to think of a “climactic scene” for the end is starting to feel like trying to squeeze yourself into a girdle two sizes too small. You shove and twist and try different positions like a yoga master and nothing is working.


  1. Maybe I'm just in a weird mood today (in the background my children play hide-and-seek with their stuffed animals--that about sums up my day). I read this post title and totally expected you to be soliciting reader ideas for a conundrum involving a girdle that might make a fantastic story climax. :)

  2. ROFL!!!!!!! Now that made my day!

  3. It gives quite a picture for my mind, lol.
