Oooh, I'm getting so fed up with this! Must remember to write comments in Notepad then paste them in. I just wrote a big long comment in response to the tip that got disappeared. Grrrrr!Will just say- yay Janet!
Congratulations, Janet.I agree. The books I love I have an emotional connection to while I'm reading them. The ones I don't finish often have a disconnect scene that draws me out of the feeling.
What a lovely surprise -- especially as I was feeling envious of Autumn :)
Congrats Janet! I think emotional connection is EVERYTHING. Sure, all the books on my keeper shelf are well written, but they don't make it to my keeper shelf without that emotional connection. I want to bleed for the characters. And yeah, I want them to suffer. I'm cruel like that. But that's what I crave as a reader.
The emotional connection is probably more important than anything else (even plot?) I'll happily ignore POV errors, surplus of adverbs etc and keep on reading if the story has emotional impact.
This is a valuable tip. Without an emotional connection to draw me to the characters, they seem too far away and I'm essentially watching a series of events play out instead of experiencing their story. A book that I can experience is one that I will remember.Congrats to you, Janet!
