If you choose to write a book with acts, does it have to have three acts?




I’m writing a futuristic story about a girl who is training to become a Valigent, any trained officer a part of the Galactic Union. The Galactic Union is a group of planets that have Valigents to fight crime throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

I plan on calling the Acts “Missions” but I think there will probably be five acts.

Can i use five acts? Or should i stick to the more acceptable 3-Act model

    Use however many acts you need. It’s your book!

  • The Last Roman:

    its more of a style thats used for writing plays, and musicals rather than stories. i think you can pull it off though!

  • Inc.:

    Five acts sounds fine.

    But if you want 3-acts:
    Maybe you could have three Main Acts, then have sub-acts within those main 3-acts.

    But I’d go with however many acts I want.

    don’t you mean divisions? some books have divisions that are subdivided into chapters.
    nothing wrong with five divisions, since there’s no rule that says you need so many pages per section.

  • Persiphone_Hellecat:

    Use five if you want. There is no right or wrong answer. Whatever works to tell your story. Pax – C
