NaNoWriMo Tip #13: Surprise Your Readers

By Dianna Dilworth 

A good book keeps readers engaged and turning pages, so try to keep it interesting. As you are writing you may be feeling like your novel is becoming predictable, so our tip today is: Surprise Your Readers.

“If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack it at an hour when it isn’t expecting it,” H.G. Wells once said.

This is our 13th NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. To help GalleyCat readers take on the challenge of writing a draft for a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, we will be offering advice throughout the entire month.
