I mixed this in with the Snowflake Method and it worked really awesome (for
me at least)! At first I thought it this was going to be complicated but
you explained the entire 27 ch. break down really well!

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

I actually took notes on this video. Very helpful! :D having such a
succinct outline helps someone like me who has trouble focusing on one
thing at a time. Instead of forcing myself to do one thing at a time, I can
go to whichever part of whichever act I need to work on! :D So many more
ideas to be spawned this way. Thank you so much for making this video!

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!

Very helpful!!

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!

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

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)

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!

this is really really helpful

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?

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!

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 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

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.
