This is where we finally get to PASTO! During this stage, I will examine the content of your story to make sure it is cohesive, smooth, and follows a basic narrative arc.
Preparation establishes setting. This is where we meet the protagonist and learn the time period, location, and genre.
Attack This is where we meet the antagonist. What’s the problem in the story? This is often called the MDQ (major dramatic question.)
Struggle This is the point where the protagonist and antagonist have some sort of battle, whether literal or not.
Turn This section usually answers the MDQ
Outcome is when the battle is resolved and the status quo changes. Hopefully, this will also include a hook for your next story! (This section can also be called the denouement, epilogue, conclusion, etc.)
