The First 3 pages: Part 3

This week we’ve looked at the questions that pull your reader along and the 5 senses that cause you to experience each moment. Now we’re going to step in to the emotional realm. Pull out your same book and go over those same three pages:

1. What emotions are engaged? [Fear, Love, Hate, wonder, Confusion, etc…]
2. How did they cause you to experience them? [What words did they use to create the emotion?]
3. How long was it before you had an emotional experience of any kind while reading the book? [How many lines in?]

We will tie this all together next week. I hope to see you then.

I'm glad these are helpful. I hope that as you continue through this series [especially the final day] you will see how it all ties together.
