Writing a AH-HA moment.

the insecure writers group
Help - just deleted my whole post - I'm going off to cry for a while and will be back to rewrite!

So a couple of days have passed, of course I forgotten what I was writing about the AH-HA moment. YES!

What scene do I always want help describing without giving away the ending and to keep the read interested.

The scene in every story, the scene where the character is hit, smacked, or dumped on the head by the premise of the whole story, The moment the character realizes, why the journey, mystery, adventure, or the quest in the first place. How all the bumps, detours, battles, arguements, and questions make sense. Why character is driven for a conclusion. The moment the whole fits together for the character without giving the plot away, and the audience stays connected to the stroy until the end!

I have designed a fact sheet as my helper.

At the defining moment of AH-HA describe the charater:

What does the character look like?
What is the character doing?
How does the character move?
What does this character feel?
How are the feelings conveyed?

This 'FREEZE FRAME' moment is the character seen by the storyteller, writer, or film director and not the audience.

Main Character, Not the Narrator

Read on wattpad
A dialogue is not spoken by my main character in the story, Vasalisa, the Frog Princess. My enhancement and re-imaging creates an inactive persona, a damsel in distress. With Vasalisa having an absent voice, I wrote concerns for her and her struggle through contact with other characters.


As for the writer, fun to conceive what other characters see, hear, and feels about a main character's struggles and concerns while helping this silent distressed character, who is stronger than any of these think.

I use my feminine propective as an writer.

My feminine protagonists are the narrators in first voice and the present tense
BECAUSE as a child and young adult, I was a
--> female; second to a male;
--> lady; second to a lad;
--> women; second to the man;
--> she or her; second to he;
---> heroine; second the hero!
Always second to male, lad, man, he, and hero, who were and still are the main narrators. He leads and solves the problems and dilemmas of our the world, unfortunately.

A girl and young adult pushed from the frame because of my sex. I needed a place in the story, in the plot. So I write from my feminine irrate voice - about strong maidens or older matrons, who battled against oppression by cause by 'him'.

READ blogs.
In my last piece, PURSUED, a Russian Folktale, the ugly frog skin of a princess is burnt by a selfish prince, a fool. I use a male voice because this fool needed to view what his enchantment is.The fool does not understand balance and equality in a partnership only that female's beauty is for his prestige.

A villain, a male antagonist, can devour a story. A heavy, destructive, villain dominates. I figure she or her needs to conquer his hateful messages as does Faery Rhyonna, who rids Zzuf from her realm.

I write about strong maidens or matrons who overcome tyranny and suppression by facing ignorant dominance. My protagonists make change in their worlds for us to witness so we can make changes in our feminine lives.
