I'm a big reader. Big, and I read fairly fast. Usually I'll finish a book the same day that I pick it up, so I've got to be careful about reading on busy days. I read the most awesome book Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. It has a great middle. Man I could not put it down. I picked it up to just look at because I had ten minutes to waste. Well I read it while I made dinner, bathed the kids, and whatever else I did that night--I even missed The Office because of it. The middle was just as intense the entire time as the action packed ending scenes in a Stephenie Meyer book or a Harry Potter book by J.K. Rowlings. She did a great job of holding the attention of the reader the entire book.
Reading a great middle really helped me to see that my middle can be fun to write and to read. So I'm off hoping that I can have as much suspense and excitement in my middle as Suzanne Collins did in hers.
How do you cope with your middles?
