Pam,

Love your PB Analysis Blog.... well done!  It's a great way to teach PB writers how to read PBs.  Thanks for sharing your magic.... with everyone so freely.  May my muse be a cheerful mischievous sprite and sprinkle my writing with your magic so it can sparkle.

Write On!
Rita

That "Plot Elements" section is extremely helpful, in general.

Intro:
Problem:
Escalating problem:
More problems:
Gear shift:
Climax:
Solution:
Twist ending:
Circularity:

Kinda reminds me of good old English classes, but those basics are fundamental to story structure and I'll keep them in mind when I'm writing.

I'm loving it, so story break down then? Will follow once back on PC.
