Lighthouse North: The Bare Bones of Your Novel with Rachel Weaver

In this class, we’ll discuss and apply Blake Snyder’s Beat Sheet, from his book Save the Cat, in an effort to solidify a book idea, regain control over an unwieldy manuscript, or to diagnose weak spots in an otherwise tight plot. The Beat Sheet breaks down the three act structure into fourteen distinct beats that I like to think of as the bones of a story. Once all those sturdy bones are in there working as they should in unison, you’ve got a solid foundation to build from.


Lighthouse North Directions and Parking

Lighthouse North is our satellite location in Boulder County. Please follow the directions below to find us, as putting the address in your GPS will take you to the wrong place.

From Highway 36, take the McCaslin exit, and immediately follow signs for McCaslin North. At the fourth light, turn left (west) onto Century Drive (there's a Walgreens on the NW corner). Take your first left (daycare on that corner). When the road Y's stay right, and when you get to the stop sign, it's the two story brick building on your right with a sign outside that says Office Evolution. Inside the building, follow the Lighthouse North signs to your conference room.

Parking is free and located around the building.
