My Storybook: Story Beats

This year I'm creating a storybook, and my hope is that you'll join me on this little adventure. My plan is to update this blog once a week and to walk you through my process.

I began this project the first week of the new year. It's now the first week of February and you have a lot to catch up on, so let's get to it.

The first step I made was to roughly sketch out my story's "beats." That's a film industry term for the important turning points in the story. The point of these sketches is to solidify the story, discover the main characters and just get some of the ideas that are floating around in my brain onto paper. The story beats are not meant to be final drawings. The characters aren't designed. The scenes haven't been designed. They're really just rough sketches so that I can understand the story.
