Keeping track of a mystery novel

Editing_and_proofreading_blog_127Most people like a good mystery. It isn’t easy to pin down what makes a really good one, but it is easy to spot the bad ones.

They have big holes in the plot. Hole that can be difficult to see if you are too close to the project. One way of getting a different perspective, if you brain works that way, is to map the plot out in a flowchart. After all, you want the story to flow, don’t you?

If flowcharting appeals to you, you might find this one useful for checking whether you have finished your story.
