Are you writing a page turner?

Here’s a few questions for you as you aim to make your work a page turner.

Does your story have a strong idea and does that idea work in the vehicle you have chosen?

Does it have sense of people?

Does it have sense of place?

Is it boring?

Does it have pace or are there areas when it is slow?

Have you given the reader enough information?

Is it too long? Yes, the story was fine but could it have been told in less words? Would it lose anything for a few cuts?

Tough questions, the questions which take it from a decent story to one that sings.
