Editing Checklist, #12: Endings, Part 3

So you've written your Black Moment.  All is bleak in your storyworld, your characters are doomed, and you have (perhaps) realized you need therapy.

Now comes the Switch, alternately known as the Climax.

By this point, emotions should be at fever-pitch.  Everything comes to a head.  This is where the hero/heroine resolve the main conflicts and share how they've grown/changed.

- Does this come off as the emotional high point of the book?
- Is the sharing sufficiently honest (and painful) to convince the reader the h/h take the relationship seriously?
