happy wednesday morning, fellow planters of red herrings!
i created this community because i didn't find anything that really focused on the unique needs of mystery writers. and i, for one, need community because i am writing my first mystery and while i am excited by the challenge, i am a little daunted by the process. i want to be able to keep everything straight and write believably.
also, people who write crimes are slightly different than the average bear, in my opinion. :)
my mini-intro is that this is my second novel (the first being an almost complete disaster), and my first mystery. I am planning a series, and so i think it is doubly important to lay good groundwork for future stories. i've really only just begun this journey, but it's thrilling me so far.
i'm still at the point where i'm mapping things out. how do you deal with the mapping process? do you use a program like power writer or yWriter? or notecards or flow charts?
