Mary Robinette teaches classes once a month for her $25 Patreon supporters. The topic rotates, depending on what folks want to know about. This month, the focus is on mysteries. Mysteries are twisty and delightfully convoluted as we watch detectives chase red herrings in all different directions. These stories seem like they must be meticulously plotted from the very beginning but… Agatha Christie famously did not plot her novels. In this session, we look at the structure of mysteries and what draws readers in.
