Those are a but a few organizations in our area, which help the community and also give their members a feeling of belonging. There are quite a few others.
How can community organizations relate to writing, especially mysteries?
- Bestowing a community spirit on your characters can be a way of rounding them out, showing they have values, generosity, and are decent people, as well as giving them a focus or goal.
- Or, the opposite - A character can be devious and pretend to have the well being of the community at heart, but actually be plotting a vicious crime.
- Organizational doings can be a great backdrop for something unusual to take place, like a murder.
- Characters suffering from the results of crime can find a measure of relief by becoming part of a community and getting caught up in the spirit.
