Story Arc

August 15, 2016

The scenes in the story  are linked together, creating the written path for the character to travel, giving the story the needed structure  to sustain itself  and the reader until the final scene. This is important to  the writers who carefully plot, and to to those who  write off the cuff.  The story arc is like a three act play.  Act one is the story up til now.  It introduces the character's normal life as it is now. We are introduced to the need for change. Towards the end of the act, the character is  put on the path  toward change, like it or not.

Act two enters and we see the new  life of the character, who struggles toward the story goal, against  any number of obtacles.  In act three,  things start to come together, then a damaging black moment occurs before  the change can finally take place.
