Not knowing anything about murder mysteries, I decided to write a couple. The first one was great. I wrote it in seventeen days. The second one took five. Yeah. Five days. The third one took a lot of revising. You know why.
I didn't know who the killer was.
As I said, I know nothing about writing detective murder mysteries. I'm sure the above is Rule #1.
The first two books were easy because I knew who the killer was. I just had to get there. I also wrote the third book fairly quickly until Chapter Sixteen. That's when it went off the rails. I had all these great suspects with great motives and great alibis. So good in fact, I still have no idea who killed Bunny Harrowdale.
It's either about love or money. I just have to choose.
What would you choose? Love or money?
