How to Start off a BookAs one begins a book
This is how to launch your non-fiction book simply and efficiently every single day.
I' m working with many up-and-coming authors who can't get a clear picture, can't find a texture or work out their non-fiction notions. They come to me because the stunning start prevents them from composing their books. If you are looking to finish a mental map tutorial, the simplest way is to buy a large billboard and some coloured post-it note.
You can use those made of a single piece of paper that you can print on. Place a large Post It notice in the center of the forum; type your subject or a temporary headline on it. Post related themes, thoughts or suggestions on small notepads. Simply put them over the whole plank. Place anything you can think of on the plank.
Complete the circuit card as far as it will go. Organise the memos. Take the memos and move them. Those with the most information are probably chapters, but you may need to split some of them into more than one section if you have an abundance of comments on a subject.
You can use different coloured Post It Note at the top of each grouping to delimit sections; enter this section name. By the time you're done, you should have 8-15 sections - typically for a non-fiction work. In order to see this clearly, use a text processor and enter each section name or subject in an outlining. Even better, enter a list of content.
Subtitle your section using any of the stick-on memos in the groups below the section name. Type sub-categories on the most important sub-topics and add them to a detailled index that you can use as manual. It is also possible to do this on a whiteboard or with a coloured marker or pen.
Use a color pencil to decorate the middle of the piece of cardboard or piece of cardboard with the theme of your work. Make a circular drawing around the theme. Use a different color pencil to line your subject to the first words, ideas, thoughts, or phrases that come to your head in connection with the subject.
It is a sub-theme that can become a section in your text. Make a line from this one and write down the next words or phrases that come to your head. As this is related, use the same crayon. Now go back to your initial theme and redo the tutorial with a different coloured pencil for a different thematic.
Use the sub-topics and sub-topics and put them in a directory for your text. Put all the different sub-topics (additional related words and phrases) for each sub-topic in your extended structure or your index. When you are the technical guy, you will love the brain map on your computer.
They can buy or free of charge free of charge mapingsoftware. Use the same fundamental procedures for electronic Mind Maps. I use Freemind for almost everything, but Scapple is much simpler to master and to use for this kind of work. Now, get to the computer with your detail led on it.
If you wish, you can go one stage further and create chapters on the basis of your sketch. This will ensure that you do not overlook your full thoughts on each article in your detailled index, and it will clarify your notions. Plus, you now have great typing instructions - your index and your summary by chapters.
Every timeyou sat down to type, have your "notes" ready. You will always know exactly what to spell. This method starts your non-fiction quickly and efficiently each and every year. And you' re writing it too. I will be pleased to help you if you need help in brainstorming, structuring or mindmapping your text.
