It's time to take a hint this Vlog Friday and talk about foreshadowing. A handy literary device, foreshadowing can provide subtle hints to audiences about certain events that will happen in your story.
This literary device is a personal favourite of mine. Deliberately putting something into a story to hint at what's to come might seem odd, but it can strengthen a story's plot line. Foreshadowing that is done well in any story shows just how much precision and planning goes into a wonderful story. When not done well, it can leave audiences feeling disappointed (or at least I will be disappointed!).
What do you think? Are there any stories you think have fantastic bits of foreshadowing in them? Let me know!
That's it from me. Remember to ignite the story and I'll see you again soon!
