Five Minute Mysteries

Writing a mystery is at least as complicated as solving a mystery. I’ve found a few links to 5 Minute Mysteries online. Try a few, then try to write of your own.

My try at it:

Karol would often see Mr. Craig, who lived across the street, out jogging but only on windy days. When it was sunny he would walk along at a good pace, stopping to chat with whoever was outside. Why did he only jog on windy days?

Mr. Craig wore a hat, on windy days it would blow off and he’d try to catch it.

Not great but a start at it. Writing them is tricky. I tried to come up with the answer first and then figure out how to phrase the mystery/ question itself.
