CHALLENGE Story Creation Step 2 should focus on two main scenes or sequence of scenes:
1) Point of Attack The Hero is presented directly with the Extraordinary World. In theatre terms, this Step is sometimes referred to as the "Point of Attack" (or "P.O.A."). Something from the Extraordinary World (usually the World of the Antagonist) is witnessed or experienced by the Hero that is a kind of challenge, or call to adventure.
Keep in mind that there are a number of ways in which the Extraordinary World might be presented to the Hero. It may come in a new activity, something that causes a change in the Hero's ordinary condition, some significant gain or loss in the Hero's life, or suchlike.
2) Initial Reaction and Subsequent Response to Point of Attack The Hero usually reacts negatively in some way to the P.O.A., not wishing to become involved in - or simply not fully appreciating - the problem being presented. In some stories, however, the Hero willingly accepts the call to adventure with little if any hesitation. Timeline:The scenes in this Step should take up about six percent of your story.
