The Lynchpin Moment

Old TricycleI didn’t even know it was missing. Nope, I had no idea it was lost until I stumbled upon it and went “Ooh, that’s perfect!”

The lynchpin moment.

The one scene in a story where the protagonist decides his fate.

In my stories, this is rarely the climax, but a precursor to it. How I managed to craft the entirety of “Oklahoma” without it is rather alarming. Really alarming. Bad, bad author.

Bottom line: Don’t forget your lynchpin.

Until Monday (travel day tomorrow)…
