Creating a Beat Sheet, Part 1 - podcast

The "beat sheet" is one of the most useful editorial tools that an author can develop. Based on his bestselling book, "Writing Treatments that Sell," Dr. Ken Atchity explains one-page beat sheets and how they differ from synopses, writing treatments, or outlines. Authors will learn how to construct a beat sheet through specific examples of "lines from a beat sheet." Dr. Atchity also reveals the beat sheet's magical ability to chart a story's ups and downs in a way that will make it compelling to readers. This is part one of the two-part recorded webinar.
