    Between you and Carrow, I’m wanting to try my hand at something romance oriented at some point. I’ll figure out something that hopefully won’t be entirely off brand…but the beats are intriguing!

    I've been rolling around on the floor making awkward groaning noises for the last four hours while I try and plot out my first proper romance novel. There could not be better time for this!

    Thank you so much for this it really helps.

    Difficult one here can you help at all? I have a romance trilogy here so the whole act structure makes sense across the whole 3 books however it's about book 1

    Book one needs to end with a dark moment (so I feel anyway)

    She's run away (as is typical for her character flaw) after finding out he's been keeping a secret from her. She is adamant that he was only with her because he had something to be gained for his police case , but despite this actually being his original plan, he genuinely fell in love with her and is gutted that she has called it off. He wants to explain and they agree to meet in a neutral spot to talk because despite everything, she doesn't want to be without him.

    Of course that doesn't go ahead because something happens to him that stops him getting there in time. She leaves the restaurant adamant that it's over but the reader can see what has happened to the police officer and should (if I do a good job) feel sorry for him.
    Is it okay to leave it there? Will my readers likely be annoyed or wanting to buy the next book?

    I planned to have book 2 with her eating ice cream and not getting out of her pj's for day or two and him banging on the door.

    It's only when she opens the door and sees his face that she realises that he might be telling the truth so with any luck readers will get a sense of wanting them to be together.

    Thank you for the video! I usually use the 3 Act Story Structure (well like half cause I also like to pants some things, but I enjoy having at least a rough outline with some key moments written / ideas that won't leave my brain alone), but I was really struggling with doing with a romance story as I'm usually a fantasy / sci-fi kind of gal with drops of romance thrown in.

    For my own reference (or whoever else wants/needs):

    1:09 Meet Cute
    3:32 Rejection of Love
    4:42 Give This A Chance
    5:31 Three Dates & A Disaster
    6:45 Temporarily Together
    7:24 Falling For You
    8:45 The Breakup
    10:20 The Sacrifice
    11:36 The Big Declaration
    13:45 The Happily Ever After
