1. The Day Everything Changed

Describe a momentous day in your character’s life when the ordinary became extraordinary and everything they thought they knew was turned on its head.

In most classic young adult novels, there’s a point where the characters’ normal world falls away and they have to navigate the twist they never saw coming. Your task is to craft this pivotal moment; what changes and why? From discovering a magical talisman, to receiving a mysterious letter, the options are endless. Consider how the character deals with the stress, how it changes their understanding of their world, and how it drives them on their journey.
