Analyzing Writing VIII – Night Surf in Night Shift

A group of kids come across a victim of the Captain Tripps or A6, in other words, the flu that kills you. 


if any of you have read The Stand, you may recognize the name Captain Tripps. It is the plague that is loosed in The Stand. That makes this a prequel to the next book that he published. 

Unknown Situation

This is a narrative structure I saw when I watched the Netflix series black mirror. There are several episodes where you have no idea what is going on and it puts you on edge. You want to know, but don’t.

Therefore, the narrative slowly reveals to you what is going on until the end where you may know a bit better what’s going on.
I really like this style of storytelling and I think I will definitely use it because it fits so well with science fiction and horror.
