STORY STRUCTURE COMPARISON

The chart below highlights popular story structures and provides an overview of their story beats. The story beats are aligned in the chart to show how the story beats from the different structures often roughly correspond to one another. But it is important to keep in mind that each story structure works independently from one another and for a given story, the mapping of story beats relative to another structure may differ from how they are portrayed in this chart.
