Josh and Scott caught on to the idea of "story beats" from the SPP guys over at Sterling and Stone. The idea basically takes the idea of plotting and planning out your novel to new heights. It's a really interesting way to write and plan your novel and streamlines the creation process, enabling you to write faster and have fun doing it.
Josh and Scott discuss the pros and cons of story beats, how they incorporate them into their own writing and examples on how other authors use them. We touch briefly on plotting and pantsing as well.
And we have our first impromtu guest on the show, James A Bray, the executive producer of the Star Trek Anthology Film Fan Project.
