Brevity is the soul of this latest challenge from Chuck Wendig.

The protagonist has reached this point through trial and error (mostly error) but the goal is now within reach, allies close by and enemies poised to strike.

The audience is expecting a resolution to the conflict, be it a happy ending, one involving varying degrees of sacrifice or even something where the goal is achieved but our protagonist does not see that achievement because they have to die or become crippled or board a ship with elves on it or something.

So… what happens next, writer?
