Happens to me all the time. It’s like they are waiting to see my face and start giggling behind their hands. You’d think I’d wise up, but only about 70% of the time do I remember to double check my bags.
Just like I go to the drive thru and expect to come home with what I ordered, readers buy our books and expect to have something they can take away after they read it.
5 Tips To Create Take Away In Your Novel:
*Give Your Character A Spiritual Truth or Moral Truth They Learn. If you feather it throughout your book with deep point of view, your reader will learn it, too.
*Introduce Your Reader To A New Place. Many of our reader’s like to travel. Learning about a new place through our characters is a fun adventure.
*Introduce Your Reader To A New Occupation. I am always fascinated by jobs I’ve never heard of before or learned about.
*Introduce Your Reader To New Facts. This can be a new type of crime or a different time in history. It’s all about something they learned that they will remember after they have finished reading.
*Introduce Your Reader To A New Way of Approaching Life. If your character deals with life situations in a way that your reader can learn from it will create take away. For example, parenting skills, handling bullying and a wide range of life skills. It can even be a trick for organizing or cooking.
