Apologies to all out there but this is my first time and posting threads ( is that what they're called?) is not exactly my thing. Here goes. I've written the Outline and am now on the Beat Sheet, 8 Sequences, 48 Beats. I know there's always a passionate outpouring about spontaneity versus planning but I've learned the hard way that this is what I do. It's all coming together, even though I am finding I have to go back and alter the outline to fit the ever evolving beast. Yeah, beast not beats. I'd love to hear from other writers about this stage of the process. Your thoughts? Dreams? Feel free to weigh in.
