The Write Approach, Episode 59: Creating and Holding Tension in Your Novels with Susanne Dunlap

We talk a lot on this podcast about maintaining reader interest. One of the keys to doing that is setting the right stakes for your novel. Susanne Dunlap joins us for Episode 59 to discuss how to set and maintain tension in our novels to keep the reader engaged and drive the story forward.

You can read more of Dunlap’s perspective on this topic in her article “How High Stakes Keep Readers (and Viewers) Invested,” which is where we first encountered her work.
