Writing is Enough of a Mystery!

Writing River Dark, my first children's mystery adventure and fitting the pieces together so that I don't leave too many clues, and so that is still makes sense, has been a great struggle. Just writing historical fiction is difficult enough without giving myself the added problem of turning it into a mystery. I do admire writers like P.D. James, she makes this process seem so easy.

River Dark sounds great. I would love to write a mystery as I am a huge fan of that genre.

I am sure you will figure it all out and write a great book. You are good like that. Good luck.

It's the "seems" that's the key to your post. It's never really easy for anyone, I think.

So am I Rachna, I watch this on TV and read this type of book, but when it comes to plotting for myself I'm a novice. :0)

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thanks Murees, my American friend in Atlanta is helping me, I send my struggles with the plot and she leads me in the right direction.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Very true, Anita, slowly it is working out and it feels wonderful when this eventually happens. So different from writing my usual adventure stories.

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Sounds like you've met the challenge admirably, Carole

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thank you Madeleine, with the critical comments from my friend in Atlanta I think it is now pulled together sufficiently for me to finish the book at last. :0)

I really admire those who write historical fiction. I read lots of historical suspense and mystery.

Carole Anne Carr said...

I wish I had the time to read historical fiction, Susan, I love reading it too. My favourite author is Anya Seaton. It's so frustrating not having the time to do anything other than housework and write. :0)

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I can't wait to read it, Carole. Are you making it an ebook too?

Carole Anne Carr said...

Yes, Joylene, I have learned how to do this, very pleased with my new skill! :0) and shall eventually post it on Amazon. Thank you so much for your encouragement - as always much appreciated.
