This got me thinking about structure and I have come across many variants of a three-act structure.
Take an idea you have and plan the plot using the following as a guide.
1. Introduce your character and their world.
2. An event that sets the story in motion.
3. Determine what happens next.
4. Determine the goal that isn’t going to come easily.
5. The game changer.
6. The decision.
7. The supposed victory.
8.Then all goes wrong.
9. All seems lost…
10. Then there is hope.
11 The big challenge.
12. The goal is achieved.
12. All ends are tied up.
