#7 Be consistently inconsistent
Want to get people to read your story? Give it variety. A good story makes use of all of the strategies available in narrative structure: Point of view, Exposition, Dialogue, Setting etc.
This dynamic approach can keep your reader interested in the changing scene, or in the periods of low change. If you make it so that all of the boring stuff happens from the point of view of the most interesting character I will not be bored. If you time your exposition or write it in the form of a flashback, I will feel like I have a puzzle to piece together. A good example of this is in the Stormlight Archive series, where the chapters alternate along present and past timelines and they climb together and answer questions as the story progresses. This method of variety allows you to ensure your reader will be interested.
Whatever variety you choose, though, be consistent. Do not flop around with a constantly changing style as it can alienate your readers. This has worked for some (James Joyce’s Ulysses), but it is a rare success story and a risk I do not suggest taking for a serious novel.
Remember this one with: Change it up or give up.
