  2. Imagine a triangle or pyramid shape.

    Start at the bottom left with setting, introduction of characters, first action and first major conflict. At that point, you'll be about 1/4th of an inch or so up the left side of the triangle.

    Rising action (further actions and reactions/conflicts) builds and builds until you reach the top.

    The top symbolizes the climax.

    Going down the other side are the resolution and conclusion.
