Hey everyone. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the plot points/major elements of story structure. Rising Action throws me off, in particular. Does anyone know how much of the novel seems best to devote to this part of the story? Also, how do you know a series of scenes are rising in action? It's hard to measure levels of conflict, I find. I hear this term all the time regarding structure, but I never really know what it is comprised of. Any other advise for structuring my story and determining plot points and elements? Thanks for any help.
