Make It A Real Page Turner!

If someone says you should “Milk It,” when they critique your work, they are saying to give the scene

MORE ACTION

MORE EMOTION

MORE INTERNAL THOUGHTS

MORE DESCRIPTION

MORE CONFLICT 

Because that’s what makes a story exciting and satisfying. If you want your book to be a real page turner, then a writer has to deliver ON EVERY PAGE.

DON’T SKIMP. 

Use rich vocabulary. Lots of adjectives and verbs. Paint a visual picture. 

Furnish the details. Let them get inside the characters’ heads by revealing their emotions via DIALOGUE, ACTIONS, AND THOUGHTS. 

PLUMP UP the plot. Make the content EXCITING. Compel your reading audience to keep turning the pages… all night long!

So if you have a nice little story lacking PIZAZZ, why not make it a page turner?

Spice it up. 

Change it up. 

Shake it up. 

MILK IT!!!!
