Interesting. This does make sense. We all search for that turning point, the reversal, the change in direction. I'm just glad that there are always exceptions, works that do not follow this or any other rule, or we'd never be surprised.
I wonder how this might apply to a painting? I can see how it might be useful in writing and music, but it could be applied to other works of art.
Started reading Charles Portis "Masters of Atlantis," Maggie, because I'd heard he had a comic talking bird named Squanto in it. Sad to say, the bird has just died on p. 111, and had a minor role till then....Tom
it DOES tickle my fancy. unfortunately also hurts my brain!
