I watch all kinds of info videos about the writing world from people like Alexa Donne, Reedsy, Kate Cavanaugh, really anyone who want to talk writing, publishing, or promo, because It could help me, and I am not obligated to try things that that I don’t want to. I’m a pretty good critical thinker, so I can tell if something isn’t going to work for me. I use the good stuff and march on.
One thing I keep running into is the “Beat Sheet.” I think to myself, “WTF IS that,” every time the phrase is used, and swear that today’s the day I’ll look it up…
I finish whatever video I’m watching on Youtube and start doing edits to SickyBeat. Cuz ya know, writer’s guilt.
Today I heard “Beat Sheet” for the trillion & 1st time, and I had to stop the video to look it up, immediately.
Turns out they can be useful in fiction and nonfiction, and might have been really helpful when I first started drafting two years ago (GO FIGURE!) As it stands the idea is still going to help me fill in any holes in my writing, take a look⤵⬇⤵
