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.
