Plot - Act Two Middle


This is possibly the most important section you will write in your plot timeline.  It is the midpoint, the exact center of your story.


Act two has in it, either in this section or the end section, a special problem, often called a "plot twist."  The stakes are raised in an unexpected form, and in so-doing the whole picture is changed.


In an action story it will change what the characters think they need to do and make the goal more difficult to achieve.  In a character piece, this problem makes it more difficult to resolve their personal problems; it complicates them.


Now you have a choice to make.  If your plot twist will require reorganization or recovery by the characters, then it should be in this section.  But if the plot twist simply sends things in a new direction, then it should be at the end of the next section.


Referring the material you selected for the second act, describe the plot exposition you wish to reveal as the act begins to unfold.
