So, you’ve reached the climactic sequence, and you’re wondering how to make these final scenes the most dramatic part of your novel; the answer is simple, by including a hero at the mercy of the villain scene. At this point, you’ve probably got a few questions floating around your mind. What is the hero at the mercy of the villain scene? Where does this scene sit within the climactic sequence? And, is this scene appropriate for my story?
So, you’ve got a story idea that you can’t wait to write and you’re wondering; how do you write a good story? Is there a structure you should follow as you write a novel? There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to writing a novel. If you’re just starting out, then I recommend using Three Act Structure. This type of story structure is a writing tool used by screenwriters. It was studying the craft of writing for screen, which I was introduced to the concept of structuring a story.
