Hey all, I'm just going through the first couple chapters of a new sci-fi/fantasy story that I based on a dream I had a little while ago (a little exercise I thought might turn out interestingly, and I was happily correct ). Anyway, in trying to keep the feeling of the logic of a dream, I wanted to try to integrate an element of unsolved mystery into the story, something that would keep the reader turning the page - I love works like Lost and Twin Peaks, and that's a power I want to draw on in my writing. My concern however is that I feel like I'm showing too much too soon; I feel like I'm not leaving actual mystery as much as just dropping mythology into the world of the story. Has anyone else dealt with this, or tried to write something with a mysterious undercurrent? What have you done to make sure you don't reveal too much at an early stage, and keep the reader wondering? Thanks!
