What I’ve learned from watching Criminal Minds

And how they’ve made my writing better.



  In case you don’t know Criminal Minds is a television show about a group of FBI agents who profile serial killers. Now that I’ve explained that to you I should also tell you that you should crawl out from the rock you’ve been living under.
  I mean who doesn’t know what Criminal Minds is? I mean it’s on syndication and on like ten different cable/satellite channels any given time any given day of the week. So look it up ladies and gentleman you have no idea what you are missing. And here is why…

    What I’ve learned in the years I have watched Criminal Minds

  1. Things can always be worse.
  2. Always, I mean ALWAYS double check the locks.
  3. It doesn’t always end with a happy ending.
  4. When there’s a twist… The evidence (the smallest pieces) are all there. You have to be able to follow the bread crumbs back.
  5. The bad guys have to have a purpose and a reason.
  6. And last but not least… anyone can be a bad guy so watch the f*&^ out.


  Do you have a favorite show, or do you watch Criminal Minds? And if so has it influenced your writing in anyway? Let me know below. 

  And watch out because like #6 says anyone can be the bad guy… you might just be in one of my novels as the one who did it, in the study with the lead pipe. Please tell me you got that reference...
