    As I discover the strengths and weaknesses of my writers, I plan focus groups to address common obstacles students are facing in their writing. Organize your plot so that it starts out exciting and then builds in tension and excitement to a peak, which takes place right before the end of the book. Supporting All Learners Writing a mystery will probably not be easy for students. There are many authors that, not quite knowing how to end the plot, end up proposing some not very believable end that doesn't make sense regarding the plot's development. What happens at this peak moment leads to the novel's ending.

    In addition to bringing readers into the story, "showing-instead-of-telling" techniques allow the readers the fun of finding clues on their own and developing their own suspicions. Give them a head start on writing and make sure you get a copy of this super book. Send it to the publisher, release it on Amazon, do whatever you need to do to get it in front of people. For example, you might have him wear baggy jeans and a logo T-shirt, or have her wear khaki pants and a tank top. Now ask students to brainstorm the main events that will happen in their own mystery by completing the "Sequence of Events" section on their own Planning Your Mystery Worksheet. Dent describes it as treasure of some sort, literal or metaphorical.

    At the same time, a mystery is often set up as a kind of puzzle or game for readers, who analyze clues and try to solve the mystery themselves. You should find a reason to make it important to the detective to solve the crime, either for personal or professional reason. To achieve this surprising end that we are looking for, you could have released some false clues during the course of the story that have suggested to the reader that the "bad character" is someone else. The choice is important because, depending on it, the story will be written in one way or another.
