Writing A Basic Book Outline

Outlining your book is an integral part of successfully understanding the pieces that you want to create and how they’re all going to fit together. If you’ve never written a book before, or if you’re looking to make your next writing endeavor smoother than the last, understanding a basic book outline is a great place to start.

Understand Your Topic

Before you go any further, you need to understand your topic. First of all, how detailed are you planning to be? If you’re writing a book that is going to require 200,000 words to get your point across, you may want to consider breaking it down or simplifying your message. Get a basic idea of what you want to share, express or say before you really begin your outline.

Yet, in most cases I’ve found that these statements are rarely the truth.

In other words, the person who says they’re a “really bad writer” is typically a decent writer, yet perhaps she was told as a child that she wasn’t any good, or maybe she had a language teacher in school who embarrassed her when he asked her to read a poem she’d written in front of the class.

And, what about the entrepreneur who doesn’t like writing about himself or herself?

I think that part of the reason is because it forces entrepreneurs and business owners to take a good, long look at their motivations for starting their business in the first place. No easy task!
