An example of a circular plot structure

A circular plot structure is one in which the narrative nodes are arranged in a circle and connected. The nodes in the story are always visited in the same order, and each node is only connected to one other node.

Each story node in a circular plot structure is connected to just one other story node, but they all have to appear in the narrative in the same order. This story may go through the same knots multiple times, depending on how long it is. A story node is positioned in the diagram's middle in a different variation of this structure. For example, "The boy meets the girl, the boy loses the girl, and the boy takes the girl back" illustrates a circular plot frequently used in fiction.
