plot structure

LOCK
Lead – strong plots need a compelling lead character
Objective – the lead needs a driving objective
Confrontation – opposition brings a story to life
Knock-out – a great ending, an ending has more impact on people than any other part of the story

The 3 Act structure, created through a disturbance and 2 doors. A disturbance to ‘normality’ in Act 1, then create a ‘putting it on the line’ choice gate in to Act 2, and another ‘no return’ gate in to Act 3.
