We talk a lot about structure, the Hero's journey, pacing and scene setting. But why? I mean besides the fact we want to grow our craft? It is because we want the reader to ENJOY reading our work. We don't want them to skim. We don't want them to have to go back and read something over again to understand it (unless of course you just blew their mind with a paradigm shift). Now you can guess at what the reader's experience is going to be and hope you get it right, or you can understand the modern reader. You can get inside their head and know what their hopes, dreams and expectations are as they read. Because if you have a good idea of what they want... you have a great chance of fulfilling it! And a fulfilled, satisfied reader creates a loyal reader. One who will buy your next book. One who will leave good reviews. One who will spread word of mouth. And for an author there is nothing so coveted! So tune in this Saturday where we will talk in-depth about what reader want... on both a conscious and sub-conscious level. Call in to have any of your questions answered LIVE! Or if you feel too shy, just submit your questions on my Twitter stream @writingnodrama! Also don't forget to contact me on Twitter @writingnodrama if you would live any of your work performed by our resident MFA actor Ben Hopkin then critiqued on-air! Remember you can also subscribe to this show through iTunes and listen to it on your iPod, computer or Mp3 player! "Talk" to you Saturday 2pm PST!
