No Way 2Pinch Point #1 [Not the same as “No Way 2,” just sort of lines up]B Story – This is when there’s a discussion about the Theme – the nugget of truth. Usually, this discussion is between the main character and the love interest. So, the B Story is usually called the “love story”. [Again, this doesn’t line up exactly with what’s in this row]
