Are you stumped?
A scene too slow? Too much back story? Is it putting you to sleep?
Does your writing need a jump-start?
I’ll admit, I’m bad. As a reader, if the story doesn’t grab me I don’t keep reading.
And damn it, I confess, I’m also as bad as some writers who write too much back story.Sometimes I get fall into the telling trap instead of showing.
When this happens, I get stumped. So don’t feel like you’re all alone.
I recently read a couple of great posts on grabbing your reader and keeping their attention. If I can build momentum and keep my attention while writing then maybe just maybe I can keep a reader’s attention too.
