How can you get close to your readers?
How do you win their trust and make them believe in you?
How do you get them invested in your story?
By telling them a secret about yourself.
Make your readers into your confidants.
Reveal a hidden part of yourself through the veil of your story.
Let your guard down and so will they.
They will know it’s safe to let you in.
Then you can take them anywhere you want.
