As some of you might know I’ve been thinking about taking a Gotham Writers’ Workshop class on writing mysteries! Now some might think that this is way out of my league, even I think that. As I evaluated my DVR today, I realized that more than half of them are crime and mystery shows like CSI: Las Vegas, The Mentalist, NCSI: Los Angeles and at the extreme, Dexter, just to name a few.
I have only read one mystery and loved it, though I forgot the name of it or who it’s written by, but I was so intrigued and loved every minute of it. I recall finishing it in two days. That was ten years plus years ago and ever since then, I have been plotting a mystery in my head, but haven’t put any of it on paper. Since I have had a lot of luck with Gotham Writers’ Workshop, last night I decided to sign up for the class that begins in early October. To get myself started I began looking online for helpful mystery tips. THIS was the best one that I found. Since I am a Chick Lit writer in the making, I want to incorporate mystery into one my next books. If you don’t know what that means, HERE’S the definition. Now HERE is the best guide I could find how to write Mystery-Lit. After reading this I am now even more exciting about beginning the mystery writing class. Wish me luck!
