FUN THINGS ABOUT WRITING MYSTERIES

One of the most fun things about writing a new mystery is creating the notebook. The notebook has the timeline, the backstory of every character, the maps for the murder site, the houses/apts/flats/offices of every place described in the novel as well as the blueprints. For grins, I also create a scrapbook of pictures of furnishings, clothing, styles of the people involved. And for this novel, I will create a Pinterest as well. Today, I’m going to begin the process of the scrapbook and the Pinterest for The Illustrious Client. Let me know if you want an invitation.
