Friday Inspiration - How bad Can You Be?

To keep readers revved up, make things worse for you main character, (preferably much worse) before things get better.

Outline of what will happen in your story. One way to do it is to think of your story as mountain, like this:

Beginning – Introduce your characters and the setting

*Start climbing – Something happens to your character to start the action.– a problem, a dramatic event, a mystery. 

* Introduce more than one problem.  Two or three work best to keep interest  growing.

Resolution – The problem(s) get resolved.

End – The threads of the story are tied up.
