Seven points plot

1 Comment

WX-bannerThe Writing Excuses podcast is so good, I’m linking it here in the sidebar.

And as I am at it, I’d like to point out this very interesting, simple story structure that was discussed in a not-so-recent podcast. It’s the seven-points story structure, and I like it quite a lot.

  • Hook
  • Plot Turn I
  • Pinch I
  • Midpoint
  • Pinch II
  • Plot Turn II
  • Resolution

I wonder if I’ll be able to adapt it to a 10.000 words story.
