Hello everyone, I’m Samberine Everose and I'm here, one of your full-time editors in the Romance/Love Topic of the WDC Newsletter, and just like I've been saying I will not be tired in expressing my thankfulness to all the beautiful people here in this wonderful community of writers for not only helping us to improve our writings but giving us also encouragement and inspiration every day.
Did you know that there are keys to activate climax in romance story whether in our fiction or non fiction life.
Read below in my article this week.
Activating the Climax in Romance Story
Let's talk about those climax that we add in our romance story.
I reflected 'something that it's good which is adaptable not only to our fictional romance world but importantly in our real life romance.
Even if we established well the characters in our novel or story as well as we already had established too the characters (you and your loved ones) in your real life story
if we don't use an innovative style to enhance the climax, then the romance would be boring, same as to our real romance life- it would be boring.
We already knew that climax is the tipping point of every story,
Now the question is how can you create a climax that the reader will be blown away by because of the impact, and same as to your loved ones in your real life?
I reflected a good way in this verse below from the Holy Scripture.
Genesis 2:22~Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.2:23~The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man."
It's the SHOCK TREATMENT or the Surprising Technique.
The man (Adam) was surprised and it gave him an impact when God surprised him with a gift that he with his excitement reflected that he was overwhelmed through his words.
"This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man."
Here are the things that you can surprise your reader through the climax.
1. The Twisting Effect.-
Twisting means- giving a scene in the story that the reader don't expect it to happen.
Or doing a thing that your loved ones don't expect you to do.
When you used the twisting effect.-
you should lure and let your reader to be fell in love on the first original plan of the story and then you twist it,
One of the characters will be killed.
Or a scene that the reader may not expect.
In real life- those ordinary days that your loved ones may not expect you to do,
like you may invite her/him for a special dinner on an ordinary day.
2. The Changing Effect.
Changing means is the way you change the flow of the story.
This is different from the twisting effect-because this talks about the personality of the character.
The changeablility of the personality of the character because of an effect through a conflict using the environment, through other characters( protagonist or antagonist) or a happenings/event.
This happens when the original plot is just only a frontage in which in the climax using the changing effect there is a discovery that it is more certain tthan the original plot.
In real life- this happens when we change a behavior for good and our loved ones will really surprise on it.
3. The Loosing Effect.
Just as the word says- loosing means-the use of the 'falling" effect in the story.
This will talk about adjusting the range of the given reflection or plot of the story.
For example we perceive a strong reflection/emotion on the first scene or part of the story then it will be adjusted or it loses its effect making the reader to be left in awe..
This is probably applied when the reader or audience will be given the chance to decide the ending of a story.
Remember that climax may be found in the first part, in the middle part and in the ending part.
If we try these different effects- to give highlights to the climax we may possibly create a good romance story not only in our fiction world but we can also adapt it in our real life.
Just as our Father God in Heaven ever since the world was created, we reflect on how He lavishly had surprise gifts to Adam, until now He is still on the go to lavish us revelation and blessings everyday.
This is one of His naturalism and characteristics that we may adapt too, because we are created in His own image and likeness.
So, go on and take the habit to always surprise your loved ones!
