Confessional Suspense

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve finally read Lolita. Time and time again, in my daily life wearing heart shades, people correlate them to Lolita. Since the first time that someone made that connection, the book has been on my to-be-read list. This is a great example of a book with an unlikable character that somehow keeps you reading. For me, the confession that he is a murderer at the very beginning without telling us who he murdered is what kept me going. I needed to know who died. This tactic is a good one for building anticipation in your story. Write a scene in which your reveal an incomplete confession at the beginning to grow the anticipation for the reveal later on.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
