40 Days of 3 Questions – Day 16

Welcome to 40 Days of 3 Questions!

For the next few weeks, meet here every morning with a notebook or document to answer three questions about writing, about your status quo as a writer, or about the writing life. You can answer briefly and go about your day, or you can use this as a warm up exercise before your regular writing schedule. Whatever works for you, works for me.

Day 16 Questions 

  1. Does your current project require suspense?
  2. Is the danger in the story external, internal, or both?
  3. How do maintain fear or tension in your current project?

You may post answers in comments or keep your thoughts private–your choice!

And here is today’s pretty picture:

Not pretty, but certainly atmospheric: the creek behind my home with muddy rushing water and a mist in the distance.
