    This book has been a real motivational tool for me It makes total sense, is written in an engaging style that has you flicking through the entire thing in no time and I now have it next to me as I move through the scenes in my novel to make sure I keep on track and keep the momentum going at the right pace.I love the concept of a beat sheet, am totally addicted to Scrivener a

    I love this little book After buying several on outlining and plotting, all of which are full of technical terms and graphs which make the process seem mechanical and kill any creative energy, at last here s some practical help that breaks the whole thing down into something much do able Definitely recommended, thank you Gwen.

    This is invaluable in suggesting the key moments demanded by customers in a romance.It makes me realise why a couple of classic novels have love affairs that are damp squips for the simple reason that thee is no internal conflict between the characters, only external conflict.The author is politcially correct to the point of having a romance between men as her example.

    A different way of looking at story planning, especially for romance The main difference is that you have two main characters instead of one or sometimes even three and there s usually a second plot running alongside the development of the romance So there s a double story arc plus double characters, to keep track of This is a short book but a big help if that is specifically what you want.

    We ll written, concise and to the point and will help with the structure of a romance story Personally, I would have liked a few examples of how the flaw wounds feed into behaviour of the characters but that s possibly a different book.

    I was getting stuck on certain plot points in my own story and I took a chance on this book after seeing it recommended elsewhere It s the best thing I could have done because now I know exactly what I need to do.It s written in a way that is friendly and easy to understand and in no way patronising Well worth every penny for anyone who has the slightest hint of romance in their books.
