5-Point Plot Structure
Whether you are a pantser or a plotter, every story needs to follow a basic outline of rising tension to a satisfactory climax. The 5-Point Plot Structure is one of the most basic frameworks to guide your story. But while it is easy to list a five-point structure's outline, it is often difficult to understand how to implement that in practice.
Talena Winters breaks down the 5-Point Plot Structure, then uses it to analyze the movie Moana, with tips for relating this to other genres. The structure can be applied to short stories, novels, chapters, episodes, and series. It is a great tool for writers and authors, whether self-published or traditionally published, to improve their writing.
