Tracking Red Herrings

I enjoyed my time fielding questions during my time as guest author during my time at The Writer’s Retreat.  One question about pacing made me think about how to use Darcy Pattison’s shrunken manuscript technique as a way to make sure that red herrings and clues are being distributed throughout the manuscript.  In that post, Darcy suggests highlighting the strongest scenes.  For mystery plotting and pacing, you’d be able to see your mystery progress with respect to the suspects’ means, motives and opportunities.
