Do you like to surprise your reader and if so, how do you do it?
I would if I had some more skill at it. I like to think I’m fair-to-middling at taking readers on journeys but surprising them narratively somewhat eludes me unless it happens by mistake. I have an idea for a short story that has a surprise in it, a hopefully cool reveal somewhere at the centre, but I’m not sure how to write it such that it works. It’s definitely my next thing to crack.
