i have read over the years alot of fantasies and alot of romance. So when it comes to writing one i feel familiar with the genre. Now im writing a fantasy but i also want to add in a little mystery ( like murder mystery , but not the psycho killer out to get you type, more the decetive sherlocks type) but i am not very well verse in the mystery genre. So i've tried to read mystery novels to familiarize my self but some times i can't get past the first page. I don't know why but for some reason pure mystery novels or even films kinda put me to sleep. that or they completely freak me out. anyway i was wondering if anyone had any ideas or tips as to how to add mystery to a novel and be effective with it even though it's not really your cup of tea. ( so to speak) ( other then just practice i mean are there any tricks to making a good mysteries).
