Quote of the day, Nov. 12

Ian Rankin, on writing

“The most difficult part of any crime novel is the plotting. It all begins simply enough, but soon you’re dealing with a multitude of linked characters, strands, themes and red herrings—and you need to try to control these unruly elements and weave them into a pattern.”
