Thinking outside of the plot No2: I don't want to know!

"I don't want to know"

I say this in relation to reading. Some authors are better than others at 'show, not tell'. The best selling novels I've enjoyed of late have been the ones that are more akin to reading tea leaves - what they're not telling me is the key to fostering intrigue. Easier said than done to create, I know! 
It's time to rake over my manuscript and see where I can be more elusive.

  1. I would really like it if you could send some feed back my way on my poems, I think of them as mood boosters too.
