Great, I'll have to take a look.  Maybe it'll help me find just the right words to finish those PB manuscripts.   ::-)

Pam, I merged the two threads and while I would encourage everyone to subscribe to your posts, I also want to encourage you to use this thread to post additional updates. As long as it's all in one thread it won't clog up the boards and there's so much good information here to share!  :thankyou

All of your posts have been helpful -- thank you! I'm in the midst of revising a character-driven pb, and today's post was particularly useful.

Your PBU is great, Pam! I love how you break down the structure of a PB--esp. the external vs. emotional conflict. Got my notebook out. I'm ready to learn more!
