It can be a moral turn: The lawyer who had previously taken a bribe to throw her casesuddenly starts to try the case honestly.*It can be a physical and moral turn: Just before a dangerous battle during war, a toughtalking soldier loses his nerve and chooses to hide himself under the dead bodies of hisfallen comrades to avoid being killed.When you create a scene with danger, you must have a turn. If the scene starts out morepositively, it should turn negative, and vice versa. A turn creates suspense, drama,excitement, and interest.Exercise #4: Share this prompt with your students.Go back to your bus outline or your outline where you reverse a scene. Is there a turn? Ifnot, create one. If there is a turn already, for practice, create another turn. Maybe reversethe scene in order to do it. Do you see the effects on characterization and structure? Howdoes it heighten the danger?Wrap-up: Characters show their true character when you escalate the amount of pressureyou put on them. A way to do this is through characterization combined with structure.Character and structure are often thought of as separate disciplines, but they can be oneand the same.Emphasize to Your Students: With character informing the structure of your scene orchapter, you can create a useful outline. Just ask your character about his or her choices,and they will tell you what to write. This is a sure way to get around writer’s block.
