Your novel’s plot arc is, basically, like this: Beginning — Middle — End
Beginning: Status quo — Something happens — Character commits to their goal
Middle: First mini-goal and interlude — Mini-goals and interludes — Rock bottom
End: Epiphany — Final Victory — New status quo
I used this for my plot, and suddenly it made more sense. I’m still having problems, but it helped a lot.
Take that writer’s block! Although I’d like to write another 500 words today.
