In the story I'm currently working on, I'm keeping the main character from telling her audience or other characters in the story the entire truth of why she is on the run. I really don't want anyone, even the audience to know what's going on with her yet. I plan to "spill the beans" somewhere near the end of the story. My question is: Is it okay to hint around about the plot, but not actually come out and say it? I want to keep the audience as well as the characters guessing for now. If you need more specific information, please let me know and I will explain more in depth. Thanks in advance.
