What Happened? THE CRIME
Where do you get your ideas from …
What do I do with the dirt? ORGANIZE IT INTO A PLOT
This is a compliation chart of
all THE MYSTERY BONES
charts I use to plot a mystery. The crime in the form of the victim sits in
the centre of the circle.
When all of the spaces have been filled in on the chart above, your mystery will be completely laid out. All you have to do is write it. You will know exactly what to write because you have done all your re-writes and plot juggling on the charts.
First decide on a crime you
feel passionate about.
What really pisses you off?
What issue makes you angry?
Who is behind that?
That person, or a person who represents the issue that makes you angry,
that person is your villain.
