Writer’s Resource: Beat Sheets

Story Planning Worksheets

Jami Gold, a paranormal romance and urban fantasy author, created a spreadsheet that works around the Beat Sheets Blake Snyder shares in his book, Save The Cat. As if that weren’t enough, she created many more based on other writing techniques, among them Larry Brooks’ Story Engineering.

Depending on your writing style, (pantser vs plotter, character vs plot) there should be something that will help organize that amazing idea into something resembling a story.

Writer’s Resource: Storyfix

Storyfix

Storyfix is author Larry Brooks’ website/blog.  He is most well-known for his books on writing, Story Engineering, where he breaks down what he calls the six core competencies of writing, and its sequel/companion, Story Physics. These two books are often promoted by Writer’s Digest, whom I mention back in my first post.

On his site, he talks about writing and offers his services for manuscript evaluations.  You can also buy his books while there, one of the few places they can be found.
