Hollows

Hollows

Hollows can be carved out of a story to great effect. By creating a safe, boundaried space, you can put a soft romantic scene into a 350-page bloodbath, an exhilarating drug trip into a period piece, or a quiet conversation into a taut thriller. These places can’t exist entirely outside your book’s continuum, but if done well they can carve out their own little emotional niche to give everyone a breather.
