Nothing makes me want to race through a story more than an idea for a great plot twist! The best twists reframe the entire narrative and leave you spluttering in disbelief; Fight Club, Ender’s Game, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Birds Fall Down, and Murder on the Orient Express are a few that I always remember. Recently, I particularly enjoyed the twist at the end of the film, Transcendence.
I hope this 2-page worksheet will help you uncover the assumptions you, your readers or your characters make, and use them to construct a shattering éclaircissement. As the saying goes, “to assume makes an ass of u and me.” Good luck!
