How To Use Breaking Points Amongst Your Stories Characters Hello there, My name is Dan and I love to write just like alot of you, but when i was younger, i did not understand what 'Breaking Points' were until i discussed it with my English teacher and watched several videos. Breaking points are usually experienced with the protagonist [main character] of your story along with other secondary characters, in my current manuscript, one of my characters, Gwen, is about to go through a phase of confusion and intense mood-swings. After the death of a close friend [Bullet] she begins to feel that she may loose everyone that she relates too, my protagonist is there to comfort her and she loves him but gets scared and angry. [I apologise, alot of people like speaking about their stories] In its most basic form; a breaking point is when a character reaches their lowest, wheather that being caused by the death of someone close to them or something has made them fail in what they had planned to achive. A better thing to do is to use a coicidence to get your character lower but never use a coincidence to get your character to safety, it makes readers feel like the character is not at risk. I do hope that this post has helped you on the subject of Breaking Points, comments are welcome, i will post more throughout the next weeks Based on the feedback that i get.
