Who Shot JR?

That was the question that was fascinating not only the United States, but the world twenty-eight years ago. What was it that made 350 million people world-wide tune in to find out the answer? As writers, this is a question we need to ponder. There are writers who have managed to grab the readers' attention and make them want to know "what next"? Harry Potter, the Twilight series, Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, the Outlander series....all of these come to mind.

What is it they have? And, how can we as writers grab that elusive "something"? I don't have an answer. What about you? What do you think makes some series so fascinating? And, what characters have you read that leaves you wanting to know...what next?

And... for you lovers of Procrastination Friday:
