The Secret to a Mystery Novel
I believe you have to be quite intelligent to write a mystery novel. Yes, very. They say to create a mystery, one my must work ‘backwards’. First by creating the solved mystery and planting it in the moment of time which you want it. Then slowly breaking it apart into both large and small shards and spreading it out as if the shards do not have any connection to each other. Accurately placing these shards so they will eventually lead to the solved mystery.
But of course, I’m just an amateur.
