Are you a Plot Twist Thrill Seeker? 

Do you crave the rush of excitement and adrenalin from a good plot twist?

Do you regard yourself as a wild and crazy reader?

Check out the signs below and see whether you are a Plot Twist Thrill Seeker:

  1. You are a literary thrill seeker. Books give you your kicks! When you are not craving plot twists you are doing other crazy literary stuff like having two books on the go or  buying books that are not from your preferred reading genre. Sigh!
  2. You trawl through book reviews searching for phrases like ‘WOW what a plot twist!’ and ‘OMG I never saw that twist coming!’  Once spotted you hunt down, purchase and read!
  3. Whilst reading a book you can be heard muttering things like ‘come on and twist me baby!’ and ‘I haven’t experienced a good twist in weeks!’ Sigh!
  4. Reading enjoyment for you comes from trying to work out what the plot twist will be.
  5. Sometimes your literary pleasure is dampened as you spend all your time searching for what you believe to be foreshadowing and characters behaving oddly.
  6. You have respect for the few authors who have caught you off guard.
  7. You struggle to control your literary frustration if the plot twist was a.) not there b.) not executed cleverly c.) just weak!  One of your pet hates in life is poorly constructed plot twists.
  8. You crave that glorious moment where the plot becomes apparent and as C.A Higgins says on the blog Tor.com ‘you see the events through two different lenses – the lens of what you’ve assumed is happening, and the lens of what you know is happening – and all the subtle clues and contrasts between the two become visible’.  This to you is magic!
  9. Your book reviews focus heavily on how you felt post the plot twist.
  10. You need a regular plot twist fix. If you don’t get your regular dose of literary thrill seeking you can get a bit moody.

 

Have a fabulous day!

      1. I loved the emotional beats book. Very good and it has helped me a lot. However I would like to read a fiction book of yours. I might have a wander around Amazon..

  1. I like writing plot twists into my stories. I’m so bad, I twist and turn more than a twisty turney thing lol
    (Another blackadder quote)

  2. I love this post so much! Your line ‘come on and twist my baby’ made me genuinely laugh out loud when I read it! I’m definitely a plot twist thrill seeker but I don’t seem to be getting so many thrills these days as so many twists are too obvious. I need some seriously good twisting soon! 🙂

  3. When I was in the edits with my editor for one of my novels that has a big plot twist, she made the comment that readers don’t like to be in the dark and surprised by a big twist, so she made me drop hints. I didn’t totally agree with this, but as you know, per contracts, sometimes the author doesn’t have a big leg to stand on when it comes to disagreeing with the publishing editor. Luckily, I was able to hide the hints well enough that I think it still shocked people. I love being shocked with a twist. Love it. You could say I’m a junkie. LOL. Great post! 🙂

  4. You know…crap. I just wrote about how my writing is completely free of any genre I’ve ever heard of. Part of the reason is that I don’t, at this point, have a plot, so to speak. Never mind a plot twist. Never mind a good plot twist. Crap. Craptacular. Crappage.

  5. Who wouldn’t enjoy a great plot twist. I live for them. I love that moment when it hits you in the gut and the lights go on in your head. You snap your fingers and say, “Oh yeah–as it should be.” So long as they fit. 😀
