Mystery and Suspense in Creative Writing presents a systematic
analysis of a very important aspect of writing by integrating it with
journalistic, media, and communication studies. The author examines the
specific rules for creating intrigue and suspense, and confronts their
universal features with selected literary texts. The individual texts
emphasize the importance of understanding the emotions through
transformation of various archetypes. The rules postulated by creative
writing for building drama and tension in such texts often deal with this
profound issue. They are thus not an end in themselves, but actually lead
to more mature writing. Therefore, they essentially contribute to
developing one’s creative talent and communication skills. The paradigm of
creative writing serves to shape the creativity of students of various
disciplines, including not only literary studies and journalism, but also
such diverse areas as medicine and information technology.
