One thought on “Ten Page Tuesday: ‘Crossroads’ by Curtis Cameron”

  1. enjoyed your first ten. The tone feels like mostly dark drama with touch of humor if that’s what you’re going for. Kinda like the Breaking Bad dynamic.

    The only little bit of constructive input, and of course subjective to me.. is I am a firm advocate of the – “the more white on the pages, the better”… especially the beginning where opinions are made in the first ten. So, as food for thought, I would cut down on the descriptive narrative. As one example… the description of the police cruiser and sheriff character introduction I’d trim for the sake of less black ink. I’d introduce the sheriff and deputy in first paragraph once inside the vehicle, also instead of waiting and don’t think you need to use the one paranthetical you did.

    Just my opinions on less ink and ease of reading. Otherwise found quite entertaining.
