#5 "beat outline" - Submitted
by DEFIANT Comics creator Pauline Weiss! According
the first piece of writing that I produced for Defiant, well before I was hired as an editor. I recorded the plot sessions and took notes,
then developed a format for the beat outline that isolated the flow of the story and preserved the detail, flavor, bits of dialog and visual
notes that were discussed in the plot session." She also added "The notes sidebar later evolved into the cover page format on the Broadway scripts"
