Book Review: Save the Cat! by Blake Snyder — 3 Comments

  1. I, too, have that beat sheet page marked! And used it a lot while writing my first novel in a pretty straightforward narrative structure. A new middle-grade book I just reviewed and loved, Counting by 7s- which did not proceed in an orderly, chronological fashion (!)- made me wonder how you’d fit a beat sheet around it. I guess writing advice needs to be taken with a big grain of salt, and flipped around when necessary.
