Creating Tension in Fiction Part 2

Creating Tension in Fiction Part 2

In last week’s post, I wrote about how building tension brings dimension to your character development and interactions. This is critical when it comes to engaging your readers. We readers fall in love with novels because we like and care about the characters the author has created. That doesn’t mean that the characters necessarily have… Continue Reading

In Fiction Tension Helps

We all have stories about ourselves. And for better or worse, everyone we know has his/her own story about us as well. I was reminded of that during a recent phone conversation. When the person on the other end of the line mentioned a couple of my foibles in passing, I realized that her story… Continue Reading

Enough with the Quotation Marks

Enough with the Quotation Marks

Quotation marks are sprouting up everywhere these days like uncontrolled weeds. Here are some examples from material a client recently sent me: The reason for this book is to tell about one of the very few times, the “Apache” Indians won. They came out on top, offsetting just a little of the defeat, push back… Continue Reading

Thanks

Thanks

My father used to give the same Thanksgiving toast every year. Raising his glass, he simply said, “Thanks.” Unlike New Year’s, which prompts us to look ahead with resolutions, or the resolution not to make resolutions, Thanksgiving encourages us to be grateful for the gifts bestowed on us. Instead of evaluating our shortcomings or our… Continue Reading

Grammar Outs – Poorly-Written Commercial

“Would you know what to do if you or a loved one was injured or, worse, killed in an accident?” the TV commercial’s narrator asked before advising the viewer not to be pressured into signing anything.
