The Finale

Action always follows the decision. Your hero has figured out what they need. Now, they plan for action. It may be that they meet all their friends and decide on the plan together, or your hero knows exactly what to do and reveals the plan. Either way, in this beat they also put the plan in motion. However, they can’t succeed on their first try. Something must happen to thwart their first efforts to open the story up for your hero to become The Hero.

This defeat will lead to a final surge by your hero, where they have one more moment of inspiration, dig deep, and succeed. Think big. This is the most action packed scene of your entire novel. They use everything they have learned to beat their enemy and come up with one new thing. The thing that lets them win it all.
