I’ve had a busy few weeks, but now that things have slowed down here, I should be able to post more frequently.
For now, here is a writing quote.

When I first thought of doing this, I found it intimidating. Where would be the best place in a story to reveal a secret? How long should I wait? In what way should it be done?
Postponing the sharing of secrets is now coming more easily. How I do it is this:
- First I plan out the novel or story, and know each of the secrets that it holds.
- I then start writing.
- The secret naturally comes out.
The thing is, there may be space in the beginning of your book which provides a spot in which to explain a secret. Do not tell us the secret yet; wait until it is absolutely necessary.
However, my new problem with revealing secrets is that I have to remember to actually put them in the story.
How do you reveal your story’s secrets to the reader?
