Tomorrow is a big day! I’m inviting a few of my favorite people over, and I’m throwing a mystery party! This, in and of itself, isn’t wholly out of the normal. What IS a big deal is the fact that I wrote this Mystery Party all by myself!
My parents (and after they passed, my siblings) have written and sold mystery parties for the past 30 years, but this is my first one. My father had a silly sense of humor, and I tried to infuse as much of his humor into my game as I could. Writing this has brought my dad, especially, into my thoughts a lot. I hope this is a game he would have been proud of.
I’m feeling many things as tomorrow approaches: giddy, proud, nervous, shy, excited, anxious, determined, bashful, prepared, scatterbrained, and many, many more, depending on the moment.
