ELEMENTS OF PLOT, Day 2

 – Foreshadowing

Day two in a week exploring the elements of plot:

Foreshadowing

Foreshadowing is the use of hints or clues to suggest what will happen later in the story.

Don't use such heavy-handed tactics the reader groans, unless you intend humor. Recognizing the foreshadowing after the fact is proof of powerful writing. "Ahh. I didn't see that coming. He even warned me."

Write every day!

Mac
