September 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #128: Climax/Turning Point

Tip of the Week

Whatever situation you place your character in, at some moment in the story he will be forced to start moving, thinking, choosing differently. The action will rise to a point at which it can go no further, only reverse, with great internal changes to the characters. This is most easily seen in novels, but it also works in stories. After the climax, your protagonist will be different. Hes learned something, hes lost something, hes figured out why he does certain things. Choose your climaxing action carefully, so that it does justice to the internal struggle the character is undergoing.
