This is it! You've made it! One final lesson and you're off doing the Twist!
Aim: To learn that twists in a novel or story are based on assumptions. The deeper an assumption in the subconscious, the better the opportunity for the twist.
Subject: Source: Taken from "A Novel Idea" by various authors, pg 30. In a novel's opening scene, John and Lisa, a married couple, are in their kitchen. The scene is told from Lisa's point of view. The phone rings and Lisa answers. It's her OB-GYN, saying, "Congratulations! The test is positive - you're pregnant!" Lisa is thrilled. She and John have been trying for years to have a baby, and they've been anxiously awaiting this phone call. Lisa hangs up the phone, tells her husband the news (which he already apparently guesses, since he's heard her side of the conversation), and they fall into each other's arms and weep.
Talk: We've looked at making assumptions, then we twisted those assumptions in a few different angles
