Tap Dancing Plot Bunnies

And I had An American Elf beat out!  But, I realized something was missing in Act One and it set off a trsavethecatain wreck.   (((sigh)))  Better to catch it at this stage anyway.

 

The trouble of it is I wasn’t born knowing how to structure a story.  It all sort of just dumps on me.  Until I get the story beat out, I’m pretty overwhelmed.  Save the Cat! by Blake Snyder helps a lot.  http://www.savethecat.com/

I’m also rereading good books in the same subgenre to get my mind switched to that structure.
