Has anyone ever thought about writing their books in the three act structure? If so, tell me your experience of doing that. Is it really necessary to write a three act scene for a book? Websites I searched suggests that I should do that instead of writing them chapter by chapter. If I’m not mistaking the three act story, I believe that the first act starts with the setting of the story. Here is a brief summary of my story’s settings if I were to write it in the three act format. ACT 1 I think Act 1 would start out where Jason, the narrator and main character of the story lived a rough life in California, so he seeks advices from his friends to find peace, but the advices did not seem to work, so he kept encountering problems, so his brother, who died not too long ago decides to help him ACT 2 Does Act 2 begin when he discovers that he has divine powers? At that time, after the main character discovered it, he started using it and showed them off to his friends. Thus, his friends did not want to deal with him anymore. As a result, he got fired from his job, and worse of all, his girlfriend broke up with him. His dead brother appeared to him and tried to convince him that he did not have powers, but the main character argued with him and barged off. His friends later seek forgiveness from the main character after they lost customers for their business, which almost shut down, until the main character forgave them. So now, the business came back to life. ACT 3 I’m not sure what act 3 is, but I’m assuming that it has something to do with the revolution or climax of the story, where Steve, the next-door neighbor took the house away, and then he had to appeal in court for falsely telling his boss that she never paid her property taxes at his job. Mysteriously, the judge decides to release him from prison. After Steve’s release, the Main character later won his girlfriend’s heart back. Then, his dead brother revealed to him that he is dead, and he was posed as the main character’s his guardian angel. I just wanted to know if that’s how to structure a 3-act scene. I really enjoy learning how to do that, but I’m still not sure if it is really necessary for a book or novel, and I thought it was only used for plays and movies.
