Writing a mystery with a low-end real estate investor as the MC. The story is about the seller that was killed after he refused to sell to the MC.

Ehm.. My story is part romance, drama and mystery. It's my first time writing a mystery, but I decided to put romance in it since that's what I'm actually best at.
I have it all planned out in my head. Though I have no idea how I'll end it yet. I still have to plot that out...
Good luck to everyone out there!!

It's a ghost story with a mystery component -- not really a mystery, but it doesn't fit as horror/thriller either.

Well, my story turned into a mystery after some unexpected genius comes from one of my dullest characters.

Oh, the irony!

I'm writing a bit of a mystery about using archaeology to discover the past. Instead of cool detectives in black coats, I have old men in dirty trousers. XD

JulNoWriMo Title: Uneasy Spirits: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery

Word Count: 0 / 50000

[*] posted on 7-11-2010 at 01:01 PM


First time for participating in JulNoWriMo, working on sequel to the historical mystery I published this winter, Maids of Misfortune. That book took me 20 years to complete, hope this one, entitled Uneasy Spirits, goes faster. I had 4018 words done before July 1, then went on vacation, so my meter starts today. So far 80 words.

Book is set in 1879 San Francisco, and my protagonist, Annie Fuller, has been asked to prove a local medium is a fraud.

Hope all the rest of you are doing well on your writing.

Behind the Scenes


Mine is called Echoes in the Night set on the New England coast. Naturally I'm striving for red herrings as clues.
