My Own Quin?

I am thinking of writing my own Quin story, just to try and see how tough it is to be Christie! Should I go ahead?

  • I think that you would enjoy writing a Mr Quin story. I had a go at writing a Miss Marple extract. I realized how Agatha Christie made writing look effortless, when in actual fact it's so hard! I thnik that fan fiction can give the writer a better insight into an author they admire.

    Will you be printing it online? Will Mr Satterthwaite be part of the story?

    Bizarrely enough, I have very different feelings towards published works using characters written by different people. Possibly because publishing sales taints it.

    I am going to include Mr Satterthwaite. I agree with the fact that she made it look effortless! It's so hard.:((~X(

    Good Luck Miss Quin, I used to try and write Murder Mysteries and it is hard, I wish you and SeaSnap luck, perhaps I will try with Miss Marple or Battle

    Thanks, I think we'll need it. Have a go Tommy_A_Jones, we could post them in separate forums and ask people how to improve.

    I'd like to read a little more and then I can work more out. Is the Harlequin Cottage next to Harlequin apartments? I just wondered about location. Would love to read more. 

    Tommy Jones- I had written a short Miss Marple piece on the old forum. I will correct it, AC forum members were very kind about my story, but I felt it needs a little more to it. I might re post it at a later date as it's Seasnaps time.

    I imagine it along the road. I based it on my home town as there is a real Harlequin Apartments there! I always forget to describe.

    I can picture Mr Satterthwaite having a holiday cottage in the area you live. He likes art, so it's a good place for him to be. I'd be interested in reading more of your story. If you want any advice, I'll try to help you, but I'm only an amateur writer. 
    If you want to know how odd I am, if I was in that area I would actually go and have a look at Harlequin apartments! It's a great name.

    Please give me advice, and be honest! I really don't like it when people just say it's good and you know it's not! I am in the process of writing the next part.
