#Nanowrimo 2010: Day 8 – Rocking the 3 Act Structure

Basing my novel around the amateur dramatic community means that I can really push the boat out on the 3 act structure. I can go the whole hog (or at least I am going the whole hog, so there) by labelling each act clearly. It also helps me get some more words (okay, so 6 more words minimum and 18 maximum for start of act and end of act comments).

I know, I know.
So how are they split? Well, I’ll let the descriptions explain:

ACT ONE:  In which we meet our cast

ACT TWO: In which a murder is discovered and an investigation begins

ACT THREE: In which a killer is revealed

Its a conceit really, but its also a bit of fun.
