I watch a lot of the internets, in particular watching movie reviews. The one thing that becomes glaringly obvious when reviewing a BAD film was the lack of a 3 act structure. This got me thinking......Does writing also need the 3 act structure? I wondered that because it is a totally different medium does it has its own set of rules (I know about the Monomyth- Hero's journey). Ie. does the 3 act work better at movies because it allows a story to be entertaining and seemingly deep for such a short time span (1hr 30mins). Where as a novel, due to the readers time spread out more allows for a a longer act structure. I mean would the act structure be the chapters?? So many questions.
