There was some fedora-doc-list discussion[1] started this week by John McDonough about hurdles that new beat writers face. He detailed some of his hurdles with writing release note beats for Fedora 10 and ways he worked through them. While there hasn't been a lot of follow-up discussion hopefully there will be some refinement in writing processes after some more people weigh in.
