A1 Mystery and Suspense – Writing Challenge Samples
What makes a good mystery story? Is it something different than the key elements that make a good regular story?
We reviewed the plot diagram of stories: starts with a problem, rising action, a climax point of tension, the falling action, and a resolution of some time at the end. It always includes a character in a situation they don’t want to be in.
You were challenged to write your own mystery story, but with a catch – you only had 8-9 minutes to do it and were restricted to a max of 10-12 sentences. Now we want to see how everyone did!
These are the stories you each developed.
