Thanks, Lisa

I love seeing all the different ways people have approached writing romance. Then I steal from each and keep building out on mine. I like how this one you posted shows the way the acts repeat the same pattern. I use the W-plot method, and it is very similar capturing the undulating low and highs in the story. I learned it from Karen Doctor. She has always taught the workshop for my local chapter, but she is having brain surgery this month. She has a lecture packet you can get.

I wrote a blog about using it for scenes too, if you want a quick over view.
