ELEMENTS OF PLOT, Day 7



Climax, Falling Action, Resolution

Day seven in a week exploring the elements of plot:

Climax

The climax is the result of the crisis. It is the high point of the story for the reader. Frequently, it is the moment of the highest interest and greatest emotion, the point at which the outcome of the conflict can be predicted.

Climax doesn't have to mean the clash of symbals, explosions and fireworks. A character-driven story may entail the girlfriend returning the engagement ring without a single spoke word.

Falling Action

The events after the climax which close the story.

Resolution (Denouement)

Rounds out and concludes the action.

Write every day!

Mac
