“Before you write one scene heading, one visual description, one line of dialogue, you must know at the very least seven things: the ending (the resolution), the beginning (the set up), and the five key plot points (inciting incident, lock-in, first culmination, main culmination, and third act twist), and in that order. Let your ending help to determine your beginning, and from there the five key moments to plot your hero’s journey.”

1.  Ending

2.  Beginning
3.  Inciting Incident
4.  Lock-In
5.  First Culmination
6.  Main Culmination
7.  Third Act Twist
