“It’s helpful to remember that Act Two is really your Murphy’s Law act. It’s also about character development. One good way to approach writing this act is to dream up all that can possibly go wrong for your hero, then brainstorm some inventive ways for them to deal with and overcome these obstacles. Ideally ways that will ultimately enable them to somehow grow as a human being.”

“If you’re struggling with your logline, check your Plot Point 1. And assuming it is a significant first turning point of action for your hero, see if that element is effectively captured and communicated in your logline.”

“For me writing is not only a great excuse to learn, explore and observe; it’s also a way to both live more and to try to stay sane. The act of putting one’s thoughts, fears or fantasies down on paper helps to both distance yourself from them, see them more objectively, and at the same time, conversely, to vicariously live them.”
