I asked my granddaughter what she enjoyed most about the series of books she is currently reading.
“That’s easy” she told me with a sparkle in her warm brown eyes. “Each one has an exciting twist.”
Ah, yes. The unexpected. The change the reader hadn’t anticipated.
I actually wrote my first book, Runaways, around just such a surprising event.
Some readers told me that the twist in The Choice was the fact that they knew what was coming, but didn’t think I would dare actually write about it.
And, so it goes. Each book must have one.
Because we writers love to put that sparkle in our readers’ eyes.
One thought on “The Infamous “Twist””
Just when we think we know it all, the twist comes in. My favorite part of reading also.
