March #IWSG: PLOT TWIST!

 

                                          First Wed of Every Month

The awesome co-hosts for the March 1 posting of the IWSG are Diedre Knight, Tonya Drecker, Bish Denham, Olga Godim, and JQ Rose!


Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

                                            Remember, the question is optional!

March 1 question - Have you ever read a line in novel or a clever plot twist that caused you to have author envy?

                                                  You ready?
                            Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

As a writer, I'm always on the hunt for great plot twists. I live for finding unforgettable lines in a novel or a great new series to watch. In order to qualify as a timeless and unique plot twist, it must have the element of surprise. If I'm genuinely shocked, then you know it's a clever turn of events. 

I believe one of the greatest examples of a plot twist that I've ever read is in the book Hunger Games. When Katniss' arrow sinks into an unexpected target other than President Snow, I literally threw my Kindle across the room. Such a great surprise! In order for this one to take full effect, you had to read it first in the book. 

I know there are countless other examples of being genuinely surprised in a book or movie. I can't wait to read yours!
Happy spring!
