I only write flash and short story. Most of the stories I like have some kind of twist. The twist is usually something unexpected that happens or is revealed. Some time ago I got carried away and suggested a twist on a small story here. Thinking about it later I found it was a bad idea. What I had thought of as a twist would actually having the narrator deceive the reader.Maybe not lying but definitely omitting to tell the whole story. The twist is then that the reader thinks something happened but the “real” thing is something else. So actually there is no twist in the story, the twist is how the story is told. When I realized this distinction (I am still new at this) i felt: No this is not the way to do it. Now I am trying to write something for this month’s flash contest and I just found a good twist that just builds on this devious narrator. As usual, if it’s well done everything goes. But, is this the way to go?
