I have studied both Save the Cat and The Plot Clock. They are very similar. I am currently use the Plot Clock to help organize my story. It's give me insight on how to pace things and how keep the story moving in the right direction.. Again it's just me. The structure helps me keep things straight in my head and gives me a direction that I need to be heading in.Just looking at save the cat made my eyes gloss over. Too much work for me. Ill just stay two or three scenes ahead in my head.

I do plan, but it's a cobbled approach. Indeed, "plan" is rather too grand a term, since with every book I do things at least somewhat differently. All I can say with confidence is that there are certain approaches that are definitely off my table.
