Mystery Writing

We are just getting started with our mystery writing unit. As we have discussed, a mystery story has certain parts; clues, red herrings, a problem, and a main character who has to solve a problem. After reading a few mysteries as a class and discussing your favorite mystery books or movies, I would like to see if we have an mystery short story writers out there.

I encourage you to post any short mystery stories that you come up with below. Have fun!

    Jenny had just moved into her new house in Minnesota. Her brother had just got his new driver’s license and offered to take her for a ride. He started to drive really fast. “slow down” Jenny said. “these are the back roads, nobody is watching” her brother said. “Watch out for that car!” Jenny yelled. But it was too late. Her brother had crashed. The other car plummeted into the lake. The story was all over the news.
    Every night Jenny would see a girl floating by her window. It looked just like the girl they had crashed into. Finally Jenny decided to figure out why this ghost wouldn’t leave her alone. That night when she saw the woman she yelled “what do you want!’ The ghost pointed at her brother. Jenny finally understood. Her brother had crashed on purpose. But then she looked at the man standing next to him. She recognized him as the man who was driving the car they crashed into. he’s the one who crashed on purpose Jenny thought.
