SPA Girls Podcast – EP82 – The Black Moment Featuring Author Rachel Bailey

Australian author and writing tutor, Rachel Bailey, joins us this week to discuss the Black Moment: that point in your story when all hope is lost, when crisis peaks, when things seem bleakest and we start to think the characters won’t be able to find their HEA.  We discuss the different types of Black Moment, how to identify which one works best for your story and how to make this crucial element of Story both powerful and believable.

Join us for this fantastic tutorial and take your writing to the next level!
