CRAFTING TWISTS AND DROPPING CLUES – NOT JUST FOR MYSTERIES
Twists and clues are MOST COMMON in mystery novels, although we see them in other genres such as romance, sci-fi, Westerns, YA novels. Actually, twists and clues work in almost every sort of story you can think of. They intrigue the reader…challenge them and keep those pages turning. The important word here is “CLUE.” It is imperative to drop clues so that when the twist is revealed, the reader will have had the opportunity to try to figure out if there is a twist and what it might be.
This fun discussion explores how the same clues can produce different twists in different genres or even in the same genres.
