Why I may not like your book
|Posted on 13 February, 2023 at 9:05|
I saw a movie the other night with friends. A movie we thought would be fun to watch and provide us with the humor we all desperately needed. But the movie was not good; so not good that I was glad when it finally ended and I could move on to having dinner with my friends.
Why did I dislike the movie so much?
- There were no suprises. The movie was dull and predictable.
- It was too unrealistic which took away from the believibility of the story.
- The language and crude humor did not align with the movie rating
- The drama seemed deliberately created rather than arising naturally or spontaneously.
Whether you’re writing a script for a movie or a manuscript for a book, its important to know the elements that are required to ensure you have a book that does not cause your reader to want to stop reading. So here are five elements to keep in mind from an article by Alexander Limberg on thewritelife.com to ensure you have a book that makes your reader keep reading until the end.
- Tell a memorable story
- Bait your audience
- Use emotional language
- Say it simply
- Surprise the reader
Sharing the journey,
