Ooops! Sorry. No one-liners today. Gotcha.
Today, I’ll briefly write about Cliffhanger. One, I love them. The television versions leave you hanging until the next show. Books keep you turning their pages.
What is a Cliffhanger? It is a melodramatic adventure serial in which each installment ends in suspense in order to interest the reader or viewer in the next installment.
And I love to watch and learn. So below is a Cliffhanger from The Vampire Diaries, Season 2 Finale.
It is my personal belief that each chapter I write should proceed as such. A Cliffhanger. And in Secondhand Shoes there’s lots of action and surprises. I actually surprised myself, or should I say my characters caught me off guard. Since I’m basically a Fart-Writer a/k/a Pantster, I let my characters do what they want.
So how do you write and end each chapter? Subtly? With excitement? Is it mysterious? Action packed? Let me know in the comment box.
Okay. That’s all for now. Since I gave no one-liners today, tomorrow I’ll give you a deleted scene from Secondhand Shoes. D is for Deleted.
