Finding Your Bearings

Full of excitement, I plunged into a new project for Nanowrimo and typed away madly. Somewhere along the line madness gave way to sanity and I started a beat sheet, ala Save the Cat. But, the marvelous Jamie Gold has one amazing spreadsheet on her blog! Just Google Jamie Gold, beat sheet and  you should find it. It’s amazing, and saved me oodles of time in clarifying my thoughts. You can adjust the word count and the sheet calculates to give you page estimates according to the story beats, helping you arrive at your goal. Thank you Jamie, wherever you are!
