Imagine, Enhance, Grown Your Stories

Story Institute RamblingVerser - Episode 24 - Foreshadowing & Tying Up Your Story

You’ve heard this before…or, maybe we forgot to include the foreshadowing…

In today’s episode, we talk with Chad Corrie ( about foreshadowing and tying up your story. What information did you feed your readers? Did you give them enough information to keep reading? Does the ending make sense to the characters, writers, and readers?

Quote of the week:
“The way of a man’s heart will be foreshadowed by what goodness lies in him – coming from above, and from around; but a way foreshadowed is not a way made.”
~ Donald G. Mitchell

Writing Prompt for the week:
Use a sense of foreshadowing to write a short story, novella, or longer about how an unsuspecting, lucky character wins the lottery. We think that winning is all by chance. However, could we do things in our lives to actually lead up to winning a lottery? Pull out the details and become part of the story itself…Was it belief? Was it luck? Or, was it just where his life was headed? You decide and share it on, but write and enjoy.
