Notes from Writing the Blockbuster Novel by Albert Zuckerman.

Building anticipation:
The question of Roses sin provides SUSPENSE SPINE of 30 page chapter. Structuring of build up to anticipation etc mostly goes unnoticed by averaged reader who experiences the ground flow of characters and episodes as having the natural inevitability of the flow of a mighty river. Repeatedly accentuate your main theme and heighten suspense and increase anticipation for scenes yet to come. Make the readers intensely curious. In a scene – text of 1st / 2nd page should raise a question that sets up suspense that’s then dealt with or resolved in scene’s climax.
