Scene Structure: a vlog by Janice Seagraves

Scenes structure: A Goal, obstacle, and Change.

It can be read like this:

Goal—And

Obstacle—But

Change—Therefore

Or like this:

Your character wants to: And_______________, But_____________, Therefore_____________.

You can plot a scene this way or the overall arch of your story.

Something like: in Matrix Crystal Hunters.

And Maya’s GOAL is to find matrix crystals, so she and the rest of the crew can go home, BUT no one has mined the bigger crystals in a thousand years, THEREFORE she has to trust Vach a native of the planet to find them.
