Manners, David X.: Fifty-Grand Funeral. v1, 10 Sept 2008
Etext taken from pulpgen.com
Here's a good, short hard-boiled detective story by David X. Manners that originaly appeared in Ten Detective Aces, in 1942.
Here's a quote about David X. Manners:
"Among his books were the mysteries "Dead to the World" and "Memory of a Scream," as well as "The Complete Book of Home Workshops" and "The Great Tool Emporium." His short stories included "Killer's Keeper," which later became the basis of a Humphrey Bogart film, "Conflict." He and his older brother, the late William Manners, also wrote and hosted a "solve the mystery" radio show on WNEW in New York City called, "Isn't it a Crime," in the 1940s."
I hope you enjoy it.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
