BE INSPIRED

Leigh Ann Eck, who blogs at A Day in the Life, does a fabulous job of creating tension in her post titled I Have a Secret. Notice how she intentionally leaves out information to build suspense and make the reader wonder what the secret will be? And then how she leads us in one direction, away from the answer to the question, only to come back to it at the end? If you’re looking for something to try in an upcoming post, this may be your next mentor text.

Looking for more tips for making your own writing suspenseful? Watch this.
