For The Clock Strikes Nun , I discovered white noise on YouTube. Those sleep recordings that mask outside noises. Did you know there are more than a dozen haunted house white noise recordings?

Everything else just came out of that requirement.
I write gigantic anal-retentive outlines, so I usually know who did it, but characters are ornery creatures and sometimes they take over the story.

Once I let that go, the story fell into place.
