Approaching Action and elevating tension

Have you ever read a novel that has tons of action, car chases, kidnappings, escapes and gun fights -- that  doesn't keep you awake even though it is 10:00am on Saturday and you just finished two pots of coffee? Yeah, that's a common problem with newer writers and one that has some simple fixes. Since friends don't let friends publish crap, here are some of the tactics I use for action.

Erotica of the Mind and Soul

My favorite erotica author has always been Anais Nin. My love affair with her storytelling has never faltered and never strayed. She wrote true erotica, and did it several times without a sex scene. “Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings -- of tarnishings.” ― Anaïs Nin
