So a little while back on February 20, 2019, (gotta be exact here 😜) I got a request on a post: how do you keep your readers interested?
As soon as I sat down to start thinking about this, all I could do was go, “Oh boy.” Cause here we go again: another super long series when I’m only posting every 2 weeks!
Let me explain 😛
There are so many different things put into keeping a reader interested. So many that it felt like one of those times that I would sit there, knowing there was a lot, but not really thinking of any of these things because there are so many. (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this)
I literally just sat there thinking, “I could write an entire book on this,” whilst not even thinking of all the stuff that goes into that. *nods sagely*
After a bit, I’ve come up with a list of things that you can use to keep readers interested:
- Relatable characters
- Multiple conflicts
- Constant motion
- Plot line
I’m going to be doing a series of this. I spent some of my first week of summer break (last week of June) to write up drafts of this, so despite some summer school and Camp NaNoWriMo in July, I’m going to be posting it.
Please note: There is actually another point that I think I should write about that’s not included on this list. After all of these are posted, I’ll be adding another resource to my Resources page on the subject. If you want access to that page, make sure that you’re subscribed! 😉
That’s all from me today. (not that impressive on an entrance on this new platform, I know) Keep an eye out for the first post in this series! (and the second one is going to be awesome; believe me when I say you don’t want to miss it! *exaggerated wink*)
Before I leave, I have something cool to tell you: this is actually my 100th post! 😱 It ended up working out really well to be the first post on this platform, but wow! 100 posts!
Are you excited for this series?
Do you ever have trouble thinking of ways to keep your readers interested?
Isn’t it cool that this is post 100?!
