When a grumbly grump who hates everyone and sees the world as dark and cold and unforgiving loves a sunshiney optimist.

When a sunshiney optimist who sees the best in everyone thinks the grumbly grump is the best thing out of the whole beautiful world.

Emotion, Reason, Anticipation, Choice. It’s psychologically hardwired into us—so take advantage of it. By having your character react in this very typically human way, you establish an immediate sense of empathy with the reader. If you do it right, you get the reader nodding along with that character going “Damn right, that’s what I’d do.” Or better yet, you get them opening their mouth in horror as they read, seeing the character’s thought process, hating every step of where it’s going while it remains undeniably understandable and genuine to the way people behave.

Jim Butcher, SEQUELS:

And no, we’re not talking about book 2. We’re talking about the original meaning of the word sequel—the part that comes after, the next in the sequence. In the scenes of a book, you’re getting all your plot-pursuing and action-taking and choice-making done.

Now you get to the hard part.

Getting your reader to give a flying frack about it.

To do that, you’ve got to win them over to your character’s point of view. You’ve got to establish some kind of basic emotional connection, an empathy for your character. It needn’t be deep seated agreement with everything the character says and does—but they DO need to be able to UNDERSTAND what your character is thinking and feeling, and to understand WHY they are doing whatever (probably outrageous) thing you’ve got them doing.

That gets done in sequels.

Earthbender Kristoff. I went back and forth on whether to make him an earth or waterbender. But in the end, I imagined that the trolls would teach Kristoff earthbending. I am just now getting caught up on season 3 of Korra. I LOVE it so far. Can’t wait to see how the season unfolds.

Maintaining a strong, page-turning momentum requires an understanding of narrative pace. Basically, you have two gears: ‘Mimetic’ narration is a ‘slow telling,’ which dramatically stages events for the reader, creating the illusion that these events are unfolding in real time. ‘Diegetic’ narration is rapid, panoramic, and summary, communicating essential or linking information efficiently, without the illusion of reality. The diegetic narrator says what happens, without trying to show things as they happen. Prose narratives necessarily use both modes of telling: a fully mimetic story would last forever while a totally diegetic one would just be a plot summary. Aim for balance, ebb and flow; don’t get stuck in one gear.
