Story Engineering by Larry Brooks-Pinch Points

Here's a brief explanation of Larry's Pinch Points.
Read on for an awesome Blog hop with amazing prizes.

Plot Points

Definition:  "An example or reminder, of the nature and implications of the antagonistic force, that is not filtere by the hero's experience. the reader sees for herself in a direct form."

There are two of these in the story.
The first one should be found right in the middle of part 2. 
The reader needs to experience the antagonistic force of the story for herself.

The second one should be found right in the midle of part 3.

They are snacks between the big meals of the first plot point, the midpoint, and the second plot point.
This is where the reader sees that ominous force that is the antagonist in its purest, most dangerous and intimidating form. It is when the reader is reminded that that the antagonistic force is still there.

Can you find the pinch points in your story?
