Re: Loop Structure
I still see it as three acts... that circle is in 4 chunks - act 1, first half of act 2, second half of act 2, and 3rd act.
I guess where the numbers are is a general idea as I would think #4 a character adapting to their new situation would often come a bit later... probably closer to the 5. I'd also combine 7 with 8 and in 7's place put something about overcoming the big obstacle.
I'm thinking I might combine this approach with Blake Snyder's save the cat beats. Maybe try to find 12 beats so I can call it clock structure. Great way to procrastinate on this cold morning.
