PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

If you write your script in these four files, that’s all the worrying you have to do about structure—because if you end each file/module with a big twist in the story, your major plot points are going to fall right into place where they should be.

Since forest people like to “wing it,” I’m setting up a system within which you only have to wing it one-quarter of the script at a time. Your four files, then, will naturally become Act One, the first half of Act Two, the second half of Act Two, and Act Three.

See what I’m doing?

Each file/module except the last one must end with a zinger of a plot point.
