Acting up

Fellow speaker,

Author Jeremy Donovan's in depth study of World Champion speakers suggests there are three "Acts" in a story:
  1. Act 1 - Ordinary life for the character
  2. Act 2 - Conflict - something happens to the character to upset ordinary life - these conflicts build to a climax that resolves the conflict
  3. Act 3 - Transformation - out of the resolution of the conflict the character is transformed so that they do things differently and see the world differently
Acting it out,
