Can you believe it’s already February? And here in Georgia it’s cold and blustery! January seemed to fly by. Now you see it, now you don’t. It’s kind of like writing mystery romance. You may see it, but it may not be what it seems.
Since I’m writing a new series and it’s a suspenseful mystery, I thought I’d do a post on mystery writing. I was a little apprehensive of changing my genre slightly, but when your muse is headed down that road, you follow. And I’m delighted with this new road. It’s been so fun getting elbow deep in the mystery of this story line.
Now, writing mystery is a nail biter. You’ve got to keep up with all of the new leads, new evidence, and new elements of mystery that come into the story. It’s not unlike romance where you keep up with new happenings. But then again, it’s so different.
I wrote my first spine tingling scene and was so pumped when I finished that I went back and read it multiple times. There was a chill that went down my spine which had me smiling broadly. I think I may have found my new genre.
