Thematic Cliffhanger incorporates something that illuminates a theme in the story. It’s a powerful undercurrent that runs beneath the story.
Ticking Clock Cliffhanger reminds the readers that time is growing short and an urgency is happening.
Take this one passage from my book:
Marc felt as if he were living g a nightmare. Something awful was unraveling and it appeared as if an evil had been unleashed in Grant Township. He knew mistakes were being made and he would have to live with his regrets.
Plot Key hits the spot and brings satisfaction Ex. A character finds a Key piece of evidence or something else that moves the plot forward.
I have yet to reach that point in my novel. Working a little slow, I guess.
A Plan is where your character is faced with a problem. Someone gets a brainstorm and the scene is cut before the plan is revealed.
Leaping into the Fray sets up a future chapter for high drama.
I’m hoping g the way I have set up my book thus far is accomplishing this type of Cliffhanger.
Do you try to accomplish each of these when writing?
