# New Act Structures Have Arrived!!!

No longer will you be shackled by the ambiguity of three acts. Build stories using one of eight popular paradigms and beat sheets:

  • Three Act
  • Four Act
  • Half-Hour Sitcom
  • One-Hour Drama
  • Freytag's Pyramid
  • Save the Cat
  • The Hero's Journey
  • Story Circle

# Structures Now Include Writing Guidance

We don't assume you're familiar with all the different ways to structure a story, so we've added some guidance on what to write for each act, sequence or beat. Just hover over the information icon in the act header for tips on what to write.

We'll be adding to this content over time with examples from popular movies and tv shows.

# Import Using Any Structure

You can also access the new structure options from within the importer, and check your beats against any of the classic paradigms.

# Thank You Prewriters

This has been the #1 most requested feature since we launched back in March of this year.

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful suggestions, this could not have happened without you. As I write, we are working on getting more feature requests ready for release. Stay tuned!
