about raising stakes. Increasing dramatic tension. Making your readers sweat (in a good way). But not today. Today time for blogging has been severely curtailed, because I really, really really want to stick to my goal of writing at least five pages a day and hopefully more until the first draft is finished.
But today I have to tidy for Darlin' Darla (my cleaning lady and one of the main reasons I like earning money), take a cat to the vet, prepare for the painters coming tomorrow and we've got company for dinner.
So the more in-depth blog post about writing will have to wait until tomorrow.
