First on the Scene

Sirens aplenty tonight around here. Big night though I haven't a clue exactly what is going on (probably aliens again).

I couldn't help but think of that entry scene ... the first of the folks on the scene. Now, I usually have civilians discover the crime. At some point, the real cops come.

What is that scene like?

In my rural noir stories, it is resignation. The cop knows what he'll find because he knows the folks who are present.

I think I should change that. Jaded isn't attractive anymore.

I hope you aren't jaded, either.

It's crime writing. It's fun.

Crime writing is fun, for sure! And I also always wonder what's going on when I hear sirens. Many times the reality probably doesn't match the scenario I've dreamed up. :)
