Hello Mr Patterson, I am in the process of writing my first book. It is loosely based on my childhood, I had a interesting youth growing up in rural Pennsylvania. My question, How do I keep the story moving along and not getting stale in parts? Thank you for your time, Brad Wilson
Imagine you’re telling the story to someone sitting across from you, and you need to keep them interested. Every time you imagine them looking at their watch, or getting bored, you’re going in the wrong direction. Throw in a twist, do something to shock them. Easier for thriller than memoir, but still the same storytelling basics.
