Time for my early morning site welcomings and happy birthdays!
How does one plan a story? I can write them, to a very limited extent, but then I never know where to go after I've reached roughly ten thousand words or so. I imagine a plan would help, but how do I make this plan?

- Scene 1 - Disaster strikes
- Scene 2 - Protagonist is on the run/ is joined by companions

P.S. it's probably more orthodox to say a novel has three acts, but I think breaking it into five acts makes it easier to plan, but do whichever is easiest for you.
