  • Second Act - opening Third

    Need a little push here. I can't decide if second act break should happen before the third act or the climax? In a suspense/action, wher would it be more effective? Because after the lowest point, the protag needs to rise to the occasion fairly quick OR should I let him suffer for a fwe pages then naturally find an answer?

          The stakes need to be raised even higher. The hero must now overcome all
          obstacles and tie up all those loose ends. If it doesn't seem clear, you've not
          added the right mix of conflict/obstacles.
