Exceeding the Challenge
To keep people interested, they offer challenges. If you get a certain number of points per day, you earn a bonus. Meet their goal for a specified number of days, and they sweeten the deal. Since more points mean more rewards, I try to exceed their requirement.
As writers, doing the minimum will get exactly that - minimal results. When crafting a story, I strive for excellence.
The savvy reader expects a novel that will "Wow" them. If I want reader points (loyalty and good reviews), my writing must exceed the level of acceptable.
To achieve maximum results in Swagbucks and writing, it takes time and sharpening my skills.
Writers: How do you go beyond what's required?
Readers: What aspects of a book do you consider a "Wow" factor? Setting, plot twists, etc. Please give details.
