Read the Science Fiction Thriller

From the founder of Storymind

Man Made follows a mysterious force as it sweeps around the globe erasing anything man made - from buildings, vehicles, and technology to medicines, clothing, and dental work.

Governments stagger under the panic, religions are at a loss for an explanation, scientists strive for any means to stop or divert the phenomenon, and the world’s population from families to individuals struggle to prepare for The Event, which will drive humanity back beyond the stone age.

The Event is coming.

Are you prepared?

Theme - Act Three Ending

This is your last opportunity to make your thematic point.  You may wish to use the ending section of act three to re-enforce earlier choices, or you may wish to alter the balance between the relative worth of the message issue and the counterpoint.

Refer to the choices you've made for the beginning and middle of act three and look at the scenarios and illustrations that remain to be presented.

Reconsider your choices for the beginning and middle of act three, and if necessary, go back and adjust them so that you end on the thematic note that will cap off your message in the strongest possible manner.

Then, list those scenarios and illustrations you want to present in the last part of act three.
