I enjoy writing mysteries, but I really suck at it It’s fun to plot things and not reveal a whole lot of information. There’s a blog post about using them, which gives some advice if you’re looking for tips or don’t know what they are. I think that they’re a lot of fun to read about, because they can lead characters the wrong way and make more a more interesting reveal eventually. If the whole story went purely towards one ending with no false leads, I think it would be a lot less interesting to read.
