How to Structure a Book

Structuring a book

There is structure even with the best fiction, the most fluid fiction. The plans are made first, then the crew is commissioned with the construction. The same goes for a book. You first create the structure, then you write. Writing a good book and writing quickly becomes much more difficult without a clearly defined structure to organize your ideas and thoughts.

An easy 5-step system for the structure of your book

You have an ingenious book concept but are puzzled about how to structure it in an appealing way? You may have already collected a lot of contents from earlier blogs, stories, audios now. What is the best way to turn this wealth of contents into a non-fiction book? I' ve got a 5-step system for organizing your book, which I am teaching in my Make a WOW Book Program, which I will be sharing with you here.

First thing you want to do is take stock of your contents. On the first tab I set the title of the contents I have collected. I' m working on a book about "How to Make a WOW Book". In one of my earlier postings, the title is Conquering the Blinking Threat: How to get your idea out of your head and on paper.

When you have placed the themes next to each item, arrange the items by Themes. Organise the themes in your dropdown menu to make an arrangement from the themes you have. Ready to put some themes aside for upcoming reading. There may be so much substance in some of those who have been typing for years that they could author several of them.

Now, let's continue with my book example, my subjects are: Well, since you have an organization, take each subject (aka chapter) and build subcategories. You use the contents you have already typed to choose these subcategories. Here is a more descriptive description for the section "How to choose which book to write" in my example:

What I call The History Sandwich is the main approach that can help you structure your book and penetrate the "WOW" of it. Begin each section with a history - ideally one of your own. So, begin each section with a history. Describe the principals that arise from or have been depicted by your history and proceed to the flesh of your section.

Including supportive tales. Continue adding tales that confirm what you are learning. It could be other people's tales. In my section "How to Decide Which Book to Write", for example, I could ask the students of my Create A WOW Book Mentoring Program to provide me with a letter explaining how they rated their book idea based on the five items in my design.

  • Help me refresh the contents of my book without having to do more writing myself. If there are tales in the book, they' re going to want to support it. A few post-processing suggestions at the end of this chapter: - Summarize what the readers should have learnt in the section. - Give the readers suggestions on how to apply what they have learnt to their situations.

That' s it - the easy 5-step system for creating a convincing book. Make an assessment of your contents and begin to sort them.
