In Chapter Two of Marked Five, Elsy has given us two great examples: First, an effective way of introducing a new character and second, how to make sure readers keep reading.
Elsy used a list of what Ashley cares about to give us a window into this character’s personality. This list is perfect because it includes three things that are specific and relatable.
To make sure readers keep reading, Elsy planted a very effective seed of worry at the end of the chapter. She provided just enough details to spark curiosity while still keeping plenty of questions for readers to wonder about.
Thanks for sharing, Elsy!
