Alright, so I posted a blog post about a pasta I intended to write ages ago. That never actually happened, but, in hindsight, it wasn't that good of an idea to begin with, so I almost feel like I dodged a bullet.
Now I have a new idea, and it requires a lot of build up and suspense. I have written little stories that never went anywhere with suspense in them, and the few people I showed them too said I did fairly well. (They were friends of mine, so I'm not sure how biased they would be.)
My request is for someone to provide advice on how to build up suspense. I thank anyone who responds very kindly for their input.
