THE MIDDLE COUNTS TOO

by Sherrie Clark

The beginning of your book should be the set up where you explain characters, relationships, the setting, and the situation or the conflict. Your first words are the ones that are going to grab readers and hook them. But don’t let up. You still must strive to keep them glued to the pages of your book and reading them.

Pay attention to the middle of your book. It should be the longest part and can sometimes be the most difficult to write. Make sure the middle of your book sustains your beginning and your hook. You don’t want it to disappoint as you develop your story but instead inflict a sense of urgency. It needs to compel the reader to need to know what happens next.

Pack it full of conflict. This is crucial because if you don’t have conflict, you don’t have a story. Give it a series of complications and challenges, and give your readers some surprises along the way. Make sure you insert important events, topics, and other things that keep readers turning page after page. Take them on a ride where they don’t necessarily know where they’re going, but they should have fun along the way.

The middle is the part of the book where you can lose your readers, but it’s also the place where you can shine. If you make it powerful, then you can hold your readers’ attention, and isn’t that what we all want as authors?
