I've been having this problem for a while now, but unable to come to a solution. I've got 2 good plot twists but I'm wondering if I should include them at all. Allow me to elaborate, the plot twists were not originally meant for the plot I'm currently working on. You see, a year or so ago, I had a basic outline of a story that didn't really go anywhere, but I had a good plot twist. The second plot twist again, came from another story that was going no where. Fast forward to today, and I've got 2 stories, each with a unique plot twist. I decided to start a third story and combine first two stories to make the third one. The novel itself is a psychological thriller/love story. I'm well into my third one, and it's going great, but for a while now I was thinking of removing the twists Here are my reasons: 1. It must be pulled off right - If I have a plot twist that seems rushed or shoved in the plot just for the sake of a plot twist, then it won't come right, and the reader will be left disappointed. Or worst yet, they could guess the plot twist before it actually happens. 2. It's only good for the first read, and then afterward, what? To me anyway, after you read though a novel and discover the twist and make it to the end, that's it. If you were to read it again, would you still enjoy it knowing the twist? Currently, I'm leaning heavily toward removing them, and focus on writing the rest of my story.
