Creating Your 3 ACT STRUCTURE - A video tutorial by Katytastic

Yesterday was the first day of Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) 2013 - Hooray!

So do you need a brief refresher on how to plot?

Whether you're writing your first ever novel via Nano this year, or you're starting your 7th new novel with the plan to send it off soon to your publisher who has already published your first 6 books, you might still find yourself at times a bit lost in your plot.

Most novels are written using the 3 Act Structure. 

So today we have a great video (-- a bit slow to start, but really good once she gets going) from 
Katytastic, who gives a wonderful and concise description of how to outline your book in 9 sections using the 3 act structure.

Katy does a great job of breaking the often complex job of plotting, into very concrete and understandable steps.  (Thanks Katy!)

So, with only 11 minutes of time here's a great, step-by-step refresher on how to create a strong plot for your novel:   

The awesome author-tips interviews are coming in November!
