Tip #9 Save the Twist until the End

This is my take on the classic,Charlotte’s Web. Forgiven me.

Mr. Zuckerman ate his breakfast. The spider’s web had been correct; every bite of Wilber tasted delicious.

 I might have given you too much information because I told you it was from Charlotte’s Web, but I tried to save the twist until the end of the story.

From Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Lottery’:

‘”It isn’t fair,” she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head.’

Okay, this is the lottery you don’t want to win.

The last sentence from Edgar Allan Poes, A Tell-Tale Heart.

“Yes! Yes, I killed him. Pull up the boards and you shall see! I killed him. But why does his heart not stop beating?! Why does it not stop!?”

The death doesn’t stop the heart from beating, or is he crazy as just like Poe.

Save the twist until the end. It’s just like Realestate in Manhattan, every square for counts. In our case, every word, they all matter.
