Internal Conflict 6: Dick finds Sally packing her bags.
Antagonist 7: Dick confronts Ted.
External 7: They are back to the drawing board - all seems lost. They enter countdown mode.
External 10: Their plan succeeds and everyone lives, except the crew of the shuttle.
Now that we have a basic outline of the plot progression, we can begin our first draft. If massive changes are made along the way, it doesn’t hurt to repeat this exercise at the end. Make a list of each scene and the conflict it addresses. Does it still flow in a logical cause and effect order?
