When it's down to two, finding out who's gonna win Miss America is a heart-cluthing moment... and readers like those moments in fiction too.
Found this fiction-writing tip on Writer's Digest site today, Heart-Cluthing Moments. Tips on making your fiction a page turner for readers.
I'm currently reading In Firm Pursuit by Pamela Samuels Young, the second of her four novels. One of the things I love about her novels is that each chapter ends with a heart-clutching moment or a zinger, so even if you told yourself you're done reading at X o'clock, you just can't.
Good stuff here!
