How to use this product:
One of the easiest and most effective ways to build a sense of suspense or anticipation is by raising story questions. This can be done in a number of ways, all of which involve “getting inside” the main character’s head and viewing the story situation from that character’s point of view. This enables the reader to wonder and worry along with the main character!
