So! Last night I was walking down a scary underpass and my drunken writer brain came up with a story. In it the central character is dead. The story opens with them leaving the party speaking with one of the MCs and refusing a ride home.
On the way home they made 4 calls because they got spooked when they notice someone follows them. The story is 3rd person so we know what she is thinking and feeling up until she dies.
After she dies all 4 people have to live with the guilt of not answering her call. Public scrutiny and some even suspicion because it’s clear the person who killed her. I’m unsure if I want flashbacks like them remembering the central or just leave them as the okay this is what connects them. I’m also not sure if I want to focus on the aftermath or during the investigation.
Right now I’m wondering should I create a detective role? Like they’re all going to turn on each other cause duh but should I have a detective POV like they all have something to hide should I have someone who is digging around for the killer or should I keep it with them and the reader outside the investigaton. Right now it’s 4 POV
Sister: Was too busy/tired to answer and texted instead. Told her she was being dramatic.
Best friend: Was studying for the bar exam.
Co-worker: Offered to take her home but she didn’t want to. When she called again his secret hook-up told him ignore it.
Husband: He was off cheating and wouldn’t find out until he saw the police looking for him on the news.
Should there be a cop
