I am so bad

I am having such a hard time with the beat boards. My ADD attitude is getting the better of me; I don't want to chop it so far down. Especially since I've switched to an original story idea; I want to delve into the characterization and the funny moments I have planned, not do the widespread Generic Moments Of Adventure.

But it's required, I suppose.

Outlining things is so bloody difficult for me.

Edit: ... it doesn't help that I have like eighteen beats for one theoretically half hour episode. Oh man. Why do I do things I know will hurt me.


  1. Just keep it simple. I finally had to write out all my beats and then cut and paste them for changes until it made sense. Then quick thumbnails to get it moving.

    Just hit those beats that move the story. You can probably do the characterization and a funny moment when we have to animate a small scene later.

    Hope that helps.

  2. For sure. It definitely helps, thanks! :]
