Question of the Week

This week’s question is pretty basic advice for writers who find their books being rather…skeletal:

Q: I feel like I am bunching everything together in my book and it is moving along too quickly. What should I do?

A: [This is another friend’s question from my Write a Book in 30 Days project] Excellent question! If you’re struggling with everything being lumped together and therefore having no suspense and body to your story, I would suggest adding some fluff and character development. Character development can happen through the actions of the story, but it can also happen through the slow, sentimental moments that give us a glimpse of a reader’s character when not thrust into the middle of a terrific adventure. These character development points will also help when trying to space out your novel as each scene of development should help further your character’s story along, even before the rest of the action plays out.

That’s all for this week! Be sure to leave a question in the comments if you have any and I will see you all next week for a haunting read.
