Mystery Story Creating

Post by TamasineK on Wed Oct 13, 2010 1:39 am

Well, i think some of you may already have guessed i love mystery stories, since i watch horror movies alot. (Indeed, all horror movies i've seen had great mystery in it!)
A while ago i was talking about such thing as :Manga Name: by TamasineK. Conclusion (witch you've probably figured out already ^^) - a manga about mystery. I have no problems getting some time to draw, and practice, but the hardest part is story, even if character were "super cool", the story always takes the balance.

I've had many searches for such stuff as "How to write a Mystery Story" And lots of them gave me some tips where to start, but mostly i know that a good mystery story must have clues and the so called "Red Herrings", other words - false clues.

The real problem here is deciding the story. If i would take ideas from other anime, it wouldn't seem to fun for me, as it wouldn't be original. Would it have to be a crime of a person being killed in own apartment, or a serial killer that is killing certain people. Of course, i lot of times prefer serial killers for mystery story, but if there was a serial killer, i need ideas what kind of people he would kill.

Like in the film "Seven", the serial killer was killing people by the Seven Deadly Sins, in film "The Ring", a girl was killing everyone that watched a video tape.

Any ideas, suggestions, tips? It would be great! Smile
P.S. Im trying to keep this bit realistic, like a girl going out of a TV wouldn't be my favorite idea, but if it could give the great intrigue to readers, it would be great!

Yeah I know that's what you will have in mind Very Happy. I just think that it will gather more viewers and fans if your characters are heroes. What's not to love in a modern day hero? Can't wait to read your story! Very Happy
