I am so excited to announce our guest speaker - Jean Richardson - who will share her experience with "beat sheets" while writing her novel, and answer your questions about the process. Details and Jean's bio follow:

“How a Beat Sheet Saved My Novel”

"Are you, like me, a busy part-time novelist?  Have you had a character haunting you for a few years or decades?  Maybe you’ve written outlines for three or four books but never labored through them.  I learned a lot about working with an outline when writing my book, The Preservation of the Agile Heart:  From Mindset to Consciousness.  However, working with an outline for a novel just seemed to take the heart out of me and the story.

"Thank goodness I learned about beat sheets from Jamie Gold and Charlotte Dixon.  In this session, I’ll talk with you about pantsers and planners and how building and using Jamie Gold’s beat sheet has helped me stay engaged with my novel.  I’ll show you what the beat sheet looks like, talk about how I filled it in, and how I work with it.  And, I’m happy to share the template I have from Jamie Gold’s mailing list and trove of goodies."



Jean Richardson published first when she was 17 years old.  She has an undergrad English degree from Central Washington University and a graduate organizational communications degree from Marylhurst University.  She has worked as a freelance writer, a technical writer, a project manager, and a coach.  Poetry has been with her throughout her life but the character, Lisle Mason, who has been walking through her life for decades demanded a novel.  So Jean is learning the craft of novel writing to bring Lisle to her audience.
