Feedback on Derek's talk: intrigue, suspense, and revelation

What did you think about Derek’s advice? Tell me you found his “what who why” method as useful as I did!


Derek is brilliant. I’m going to watch some of his other videos / read his stuff for sure. I love his “dialogue / confrontation is the enemy of tension” for example. And “make the reader ask the question before giving the answer” and “the more important the information, the less easy it should be for readers to access it”. Whew! And, yes, the 1st 25% the’ What?’ The 50% marks the ‘Who?’ and 75% marks the ‘Why?’. So useful!


Derek had some excellent advice! His talk was very interesting and I’m definitely going to rewatch.
