Ah, so here I am enjoying Wrestlemania. It’s going to be a long drive back tonight, but always worth it to see friends. And since I’m here seeing the culmination of pro wrestling storytelling for the year, let’s take a (short) look at story climaxes, shall we?
The climax is your opportunity to end your story with a bang. You’re going to have denouement after, of course, to let things settle, but that climax needs to wow your reader.
So whats the key to a good climax? Got me, but I can give you an opinion. For me, I want to make sure that not only is there excitement (when and where appropriate) but that whatever questions I’ve raised I need to either resolve or address in such a way as to setup for the next story.
Okay. I’ve been plucking at this blog all day and it’s almost time to get back on the road. I’ll try to have something deeper tomorrow when I can properly focus.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
