Types of plot twists
  • Clever: A clever plot twist uses story constraints to throw in an interesting twist that is just clever. You didn’t see it coming, but when it happens, you think, "Oh, that is so good." 
  • Revealing: This plot twist culminates in the answers to uncertainty in your story. 
  • Shocking: This twist completely reverses what you believe is true in the story. In the end, it leaves readers thinking, "Boy, I did not see that coming."
