“Yesterday, I made a stupid mistake.”

What’s going through your mind?
You may be thinking:
“How?”
“What happened?”
“Why?”
Etc.
I just created suspense. You want to know the details. Suspense is the key to being a good storyteller. Suspense keeps our audience on the edge of their seats, desperately wanting to know more.
Don’t forget that suspense is like tension. Its very important we relieve that tension through the story otherwise it will irritate the audience. What was my stupid mistake? I failed to save a Word document before I shut down the computer. Sixty minutes down the drain!
Put suspense into your stories and you will become a very effective at storytelling.
