The Paradigm – Exercise Three: Part 1

Okay, the paradigm is done…or at least this version of it is done. It’s weird, I mean, on paper it looks like such a simple thing, but when you sit down and think about it, and how it’s going to be the backbone of everything else you write, you see that it’s not as easy as it looks.

Granted, this early on everything can change, and quite easily, but still, it’s not easy. Well, maybe it is for some people, good for them. I’d venture that for the rest of us it’s not simple. So meh.

Here is the write up of what I came up with:

ACT 1 – Tom’s sad and lonely life

Plot Point 1 – Intervention about Tom’s lack of social life

ACT 2 – Tom learns how to be social

Plot Point 2 – Michelle takes a job in Seattle

ACT 3 – Tom leaves to be with her

As promissed, here is the picture of the actual diagram:

Next chapter, four pages. Should be fun.
