I know this is old but could you please in a video take a well known book
and use it as an example for this outlining technique. Like take The Hunger
Games for example and say: the place where this and this happened is the
start of the second act?

the book "Punching Babies (a how-to guide)" by Adron J. Smitley is a good
resource along with this video =-)

Hey, I watched this video a bit ago and am really interested in this method
of outlining... Do you have a PDF or DOC file of this outline laid out?
Just wondering :)

You have no idea how much this helped me. I was constantly being told to
outline ny story but I didn't know how until I was looking through your
playlist and stumbled upon this video. Thank you so much I can now write
without any writers block!

writers like me. thank you so much, kat, for posting this. i couldn't even
start my book before this.

This was really helpful. I have been sitting on a story idea since high
school (that was a while ago for me) and I never really had any idea how to
get it started. This and your other writing tips video really helped me
with getting started. So, thank you. :D

I'm planning for NaNoWriMo 2014 last minute and I remembered this, so I am
using this to outline that novel :) thanks for your help!

Thank-you so much for this video it has been so helpful. I was working on a
story but i found it had no real structure so i am defiantly going to try
and use this! Thanks so much!

So do your novels end up being literally 27 chapters long? I would guess
that this alters as you actually begin to write. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this! Using this structure for NaNoWriMo this year.
Very helpful!!

This is awesome. Does anyone know where there's a good explanation of each
of the blocks? I'd like more details, too.

Thank you so much for this. I'm preparing for nano and I have a whole bunch
of ideas for my current WIP and I've been having problems sequencing them.
I typed up this outline and printed it to work on off the computer. It
helped me see everything so much clearly and I've been able to get my
thoughts out more easily. Thank you!!!

This was the best, most lucid description of how to basically structure a
work of Fiction I have ever heard. I was enthralled and totally excited
(and it was a great lead in to the followup video using Scrivener)

This helped me a lot! I'm a composer/recording musician, and I am working
on a concept album- I plan on writing a fairly detailed story first, and
then I plan on translating it into music. After watching this I have a
good idea of how I want to organize it and what directions I want to take
it in. I'll follow this structure pretty closely, with each act
represented by a whole cd's worth of music- so it will be a triple album.
Right now, music is just a hobby, but within the next 5 years I hope to
make the leap into the professional!
