### A Short Fiction Trick
[00:04:39] [A Short Fiction Trick](https://coldhandboyack.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/a-short-fiction-trick/) by Coldhandboyack.

I relate this story structure to a magic trick. I learned the words in a movie called The Prestige. It’s been a few years, so I had to Google the words to refresh my memory. The premise is the stages of an illusion performed on stage.

The Setup: Get the central idea in there right away. The title of the story isn’t too soon. Show the audience readers what the illusion story is about.

The Performance: This part is relative to The Setup, but it’s all about misdirection and deception.

The Prestige: This is the "ooh aah" part of the story. This is the big revelation that readers never saw coming.
