There is a saying that ‘curiosity killed the cat’.

While it is true being too inquisitive about other people could land you in all sorts of trouble: the opposite is true for the craft of storytelling.

Part of the writer’s ‘To Do’ list is to craft a story that deliberately piques the interest of (potential) readers to pry.

And just like a poker player keeping his cards close to his chest, a skilled writer reveals just enough to keep the reader hooked from first line to last.

Until next time, Jo
