    Love it!

  2. James Knaack says:

    I love the recent podcasts (recent to me at least), that provide new insights into the Story Beats (e.g. Pillar Beats).

    How do you think this description of the Finale lines up with Blake’s Five Point Finale?

    1. Gather the Team
    2. Storm the Castle
    3. High-Tower Surprise
    4. Dig Down Deep
    5. Executing the New Plan

    Especially in a Buddy-Love, Rites of Passage or other Non-Action based genre?

    I’ve found the Five-Points to be good, but I am intrigued in this extension, as it seems to add new depth.
