Scenecarding your story/Writing a beat sheet:

It is a common and important step in the screenwriting process to plan out a story on scene cards—before writing the film treatment, even. The reason why scene cards are used is because they can be swapped around, added, and removed without affecting adjacent scenes. A document with all the scenes laid out is called a beat sheet.

Here's a definition of what "beat" means in screenwriting.

So, I thought that I'd buckle down and actually start beatsheeting AB!Beowulf (which is a comic book) and seeing what I get out of it.

My question for you all is, does anyone else do the same sort of thing, and if so, how do you do it?
Banned entirely for telling FE that he was being rude and not contributing to the discussion. I shall watch down from the goon heavens.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
