How to Plan a BookPlanning a book
There are 5 easy ways to plan your book (my failsafe process)
When asked how to spell and how to spell quickly, I always give the same advice: If I see their plan, it is simple to understand why - all they have done is to list their five outlines. How do you make a fail-safe plan for your book? Begin with the core concept of your book.
What is your book about in one phrase? Don't be worried if it sounds good or if it makes good for others - this phrase only has to make itself useful for you. Create a mindmap. Grab a sheet of empty billboard and put your main ideas in the center of the page.
And what other notions are driving this theorem? Draw a mindmap with outlines that point from your core concept to any related concept, and then outlines that point from any related concept to other related concepts. Do you brainstorm - can you imagine practical applications of these notions? Include them in your mindmap.
You can even include memories to look up something or to share your experiences - you will remember them if you don't. Organize your mindmap. Check your mindmap (which probably looks like a big confusion right now), and see if there are any shared topics that come up. Are there any related but on the other side of the page?
Then, outline a new, better organized mindmap that groups the shared notions. Those impulses become the major parts or chapter of your book. When your book is a "how to" book, think about the processes you use to help your reader outcomes. Allows you to group the idea on your mindmap into the stages of your processes.
Schedule single sections. Put each chapter/section theme on a empty page (don't think about the title of the section yet - you can edit it later. Be the author of your book! As soon as you have detailed every point in your plan as much as possible, begin composing your book. When you begin, you will see that there is not much more to be written because you have so thoroughly designed.
