Today I finished the fourth and final part of Act Two in the plot outline. I’m going to admit that when I began the plot outline, I was a little bit worried that I wouldn’t have enough material for a second act. The good news is this wasn’t the case. Every scene has to advance a character arc, the main arc, and/or a relationship between characters in order to be in the script. Turns out that I had plenty of scenes from my six characters that I could include. In fact, Act Two is estimated to come out at 67.5 pages when I was aiming for 60 pages!
I might have to cut some of those scenes out but I’m hesitant to do that at this moment. I’ll wait and see.
Tomorrow: I’ll do all of Act Three in the plot outline!
