How do you get the most out of the inciting incident in your story? Here are three challenges that you should set your inciting incident, and it should be equal to them all. First it should answer the need for action you created at the start of your story, second it needs to transform the story, and grip the reader as it does so, and finally it needs to be the springboard into the next stage, providing the necessary momentum to draw the reader in as the main part of your story.
