Attack (#7 of 12 Sentences)

#7 Attack

#7 of only 12 sentences you need to define your entire novel.

Based on the new information introduced at the Midpoint, the hero shifts from wanderer, reacting uselessly, to warrior, attacking the problem head on.

The magnitude of this shift reminds us how significant the Midpoint is. A weak Midpoint makes the Attack less believable.

Our hero begins to appear more heroic. Rather than hiding and running, they’re plotting and fighting. Not winning; not yet. But making headway, moving toward the Climax of the story and its final Resolution.

Write one sentence (once again, probably a fairly long grammatically untidy sentence) describing your hero’s shift from running scared to fighting back: what they do, and how the Midpoint pointed straight at this change.

Tomorrow, #8: the Second Pinch Point.
