2.The next step is to vet the treatment and then to convert it into scenes and sequences. Then by using the 3-act four-part structure, the scenes can be organized for maximum conflict. In the method, there are 12 sequences, each containing a group of scenes that answer a specific question.
3. Using the Mythic Journey Map, the scenes are laid out in the proper order.
4. Students can then write 15-25 pages a week. This is the fun part, because it’s easy to write when you know what you’re writing about!
5. Once the draft is completed, students prepare a scene by scene outline with page numbers. This document becomes a personal blueprint that allows the student to remain objective so that the revision work will be efficient.
6. Put the draft away for a few days, then reread using the outline. Make notes on the entire script BEFORE you begin revising it.
I love this class not only for their talent and enthusiasm, but also for their mutual support of each other!
Here’s to your successful writing,
