How to Use Foreshadowing - Helping Writers Become Authors - Writing Rightly

How to Use Foreshadowing - Helping Writers Become Authors - Writing Rightly | Literary Productivity | Scoop.it
If we sift foreshadowing down to its simplest form, we could say it prepares readers for what will happen later in the story.

Penelope's curator insight, January 13, 9:35 PM

 

We hear lots about point of view, plot and climax, but what about foreshadowing? This very important element of a story seems to have been relegated to a back room and stuffed in the closet.

 

In its simplest form? It prepares readers for what will happen in the story. I'm sure you've read books where at the point of a major plot twist, you shake your head and say, huh? We all have. You feel cheated and want to snap that book shut!

 

There are two parts:

 

Part 1: The Plant    (Blantant or Subtle Hints)

Part 2: The Payoff (Important Scenes Play Out)

 

Foreshadowing can ease readers into what is going to happen. Sneak it in like pureed veggies, but don't hit readers over the head with it. This way, when you execute your plot twist, your readers will be delighted--not disgusted.

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, January 18, 7:41 AM

Superb writing tips.

Bright Medusa's curator insight, January 22, 8:38 AM

The best piece of advice to just get started is to just get started. I (and many other novice writers) fear not getting it perfect out of the gate. There’s a nugget of wisdom in only commiting to do the first 80% of the writing. That is, get it about 80% of the way there. The first draft. Unpretty. Unpolished. Then pass it to someone you trust for edits and critiques. This helps keep momentum going and prevents you from getting stuck, unsure how to pull it together or finish it up.
