My Weakness

Every writer has a weakness. For most writers, they’ll tell you middles are their snag. I’m not talking about belly blubber. I’m talking about the middle of a story. The middle of a story is where the tempo slows, the author delves deeper into detail, and things are getting into place for the ending.

I don’t really have a problem with middles. I’ve learned how to keep things going. My issue has always been…

The climax. That moment of suspense when the stakes are raised, and the reader can’t put down the book because they have no idea how the hero will get outta this one. It’s the moment of change, the moment of story peaking.

I can write an okay climax that can get by. But even that takes a lot of time and effort on my part. Right now I’ve decided to re-write my climax for Book 4…again.

I’ve decided to pull out all the stops this time. And I think it might pay off.

Well, you can be the judge of that later when you read it J
