WRITING A MYSTERY STORY 
Mysteries can be divided into several categories. There are puzzling stories, detective I crime stories, and suspense stories. They all give the reader a chance to become involved in the solution of the story through clues and character descriptions.

• Why is he or she important to the story? 
• In what ways are your characters alike? 
• How are they different? 
• What can your characters learn from each other? 
• One last thing to remember: your characters don't always have to be human. If an animal plays a part in the story, that animal is a character, too 
Setting 
A story has to happen in a place. 
• The setting might be a place you are familiar with. 
• It might even be another planet!
