How do you write a good mystery? I've pondered this, and wondered if I had the stuff to pull it off. Stephen Tremp's recent post on Breakthrough Blogs took some of the mystery out of writing one.
The Seven C's of Writing a Great Mystery highlights tips found in Gillian Roberts book, You Can Write a Mystery.
Stephen offers pointers based on these Seven C's that include characters, conflict, casualty, complications, change, and crisis. Sounds like a good recipe for a mystery to me. I may just have to give it a try.
How about you? Have you ever written a mystery? If not, would you like to try? Do you have any mystery writing pointers? Please share!
