How do you know when you have put too much foreshadowing into a story? How do you know if the reader can too easily guess where the story is going by catching on to the hints you've laid out? As the actuall writer of the story, I've found that it can be kinda hard to know when the foreshadowing and hints at certain plot points are too obvious and when they aren't, since I already know what the foreshadowing is supposed to hint towards already. How do I make foreshadowing feel dynamic and natural and not forced? I want the foreshadowing in my stories to give the reader the sense that something is coming, without knowing exactly what it is, and sometimes not even realize the foreshadowing is even there. This is in hopes that if the reader likes the book enough to read it more than once, they will realize what certain little things early on in the story means, giving them a whole new appreciation for the little details and the story as a whole.
