Craft an emotionally charged story that will resonate with readers! Emotional impact shouldn't be dropped into your novel as an afterthought or forced upon your story with a pair of pliers and an iron grip. It should be carefully sewn into the fabric of the story to create tension-filled moments that will keep readers turning pages. In Writing with Emotion, Tension, & Conflict, you'll learn how to layer emotional moments and deep connections to create a tapestry filled with conflict, pathos, and genuine feeling. * Create emotional depth, conflict, and tension in your novel by carefully crafting plot, characters, setting, word choice, and more. * Learn what makes readers "tick" and what will elicit the strongest emotional responses. * Write believable, emotional scenes and dialogue--and trim away the sappiness. When writing a novel, your ultimate goal is to make readers smile, weep, rage, and laugh right along with your characters. Writing with Emotion, Tension, & Conflict will show you how to evoke a multitude of feelings in your readers--and keep them coming back for more. "Not only does this book embrace some of the most complex elements of story construction in a clear, easy-to-digest format, it acts as inspiration for the writer. Sentence upon sentence of outstanding advice!" --Mary Buckham, award-winning author of Invisible Recruits urban fantasy series "From initial plotting to building setting to developing characters to organizing your work, Writing with Emotion, Tension, & Conflict brims with essential knowledge and practical exercises which combined create a toolkit that no aspiring author can afford to be without." --Kelly L. Stone, author of Time to Write: No Excuses, No Distractions, No More Blank Pages and Thinking Write: The Secret to Freeing Your Creative Mind
