Staying organized while plotting mystery
Hi mystery writers!
I've embarked on a little crash course in teaching myself about the mystery genre. The more mysteries I read, both on Book Country and off the site, the more impressed I get with the organizational skills of mystery writers.
I was wondering if anyone has any tips--general or very specific--about plotting mystery and making sure all the clues and reveals happen in a way that keeps the reader guessing, but feels satisfying in the end?

Ayuda, that's really interesting that you are finding yourself drawn
to another genre. I am still learning a lot about mystery writing and
how to stay organized. Basically, I am also learning through reading.
I put together this post about the difference between thriller and mystery, which might be helpful to you as you orient yourself to a new genre!
And Nevena had an awesome post a few weeks back that illuminated how important it is to figure out what genre you are writing in.
