What is the Save the Cat! Method? 

The Save the Cat! story-structure method breaks down every great story ever told into 15 “beats” or plot points that map out a compelling story with a satisfying character arc. Originally created for screenwriters, bestselling author Jessica Brody has successfully adapted the method for novelists with her #1 bestselling book, Save the Cat! Writes a Novel and the popular Save the Cat! online novel writing course.

Because whether you’re writing a fantasy series, a romance, or the next Great American Novel, every captivating story throughout time (from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie) has the same 15 essential story “beats” and yours should too!
