Product Description
What is a “heart stopping” dialog segment? It’s a single statement like “Houston, we’ve had a problem” that sparks curiosity. “What could possibly go wrong? . . . go wrong? . . . go wrong?” is another one. It suggests a multitude of possibilities. Tiny dialog segments like these can be powerful hooks. They are part of a larger picture, a story just waiting to be told. In these examples, it’s those two words, “problem” and “wrong”, that make them work because they address the very essence of writing fiction.

The 24 heart-stoppers included in this download range in their level of intensity, from every day, “realistic” situations to action/adventure, but they all lead to the same conclusion – there’s a problem to deal with.
