Making your readers case is so important!
by Lisa Sledge
Please don’t hate me when I tell you. I slept through two-thirds of the final action sequence in Avengers. In my defense, the action went on for a very long time. Don’t get me wrong, action/adventure films and books are high up on my list of favorites. So what happened? How could I sleep through the climax?
I could predict the ending.
I didn’t care.
I read a lot of blogs on writing. One common thread of advice is that the best way to capture an audience’s attention is to ratchet up the tension from the very first page and never let it stop. That readers will only care to finish the book if they’re riveted by an unending series of action.
What crappy load of garbage to feed aspiring writers (and yes, I definitely still fit in the “aspiring” category).
