Hi there! I'm working on writing my first mystery short story (or at least, I'm trying to...). Does anyone have some tips on how to write mystery?
I always try to incorporate twists into my stories. Always try to keep many options on how the conflict could be solved, and add a ton of suspense. That should do it!
Ok thanks! How would you suggest to start it out? Like the first few paragraphs?
I try to start out with some action, like start out at the end, go back to the beginning and tell the story, or just start out with the old fqshioned discovery of a murder. God luck!
