Death in the stars

telescopeFunny where the inspiration comes from. I downloaded an astronomy app this weekend, Night Sky Pro, and began thinking of where I might put a telescope if I bought one, again. Then I remembered that when I had one some years ago, it was usually too cold on clear nights to go out to use it. So I considered the option of building a shed, with an opening roof. But thought this still might not be warm enough. The obvious solution would be a paraffin heater. Dangerous though, unless the roof was actually open, because of carbon monoxide poisoning. Blam! How about a story where an amateur astronomer is found dead in his shed-cum-observatory, presumed to have been overcome by fumes. But, of course, our intrepid detective discovers this isn’t the case. I’ll need to put that one in the box marked ‘ideas’.

Where do you find your inspiration?
