  1. Our fun fact for Act 2’s table of contents is that the line break’s between groups of scenes aren’t random. I divide everything into three acts as I plan out the story – Arc 1, 3/5/7, and 9 are each their own act as far as the overall story goes (with 3/5/7 being further divided into the individual arcs 3, 5, and 7), each arc obviously has its 3 acts, and the individual acts, too, are divided into three. It helps be know keep the structure of the story intact and to be aware of what I’m doing in each section of the story. So here we have the three parts of act 2, each on an individual line.
    The exception to this overall structure are the intermissions, which serve to break up the story somewhat and to reduce tension. Arcs 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 are all intermission arcs, shorter than the others and serving the same purpose on the next level up. Be glad I didn’t go so far as to have intermissions within an act!
