Updating Booktoots Healing

Hi everyone. Kindly pardon my site’s readability while I update the site I promise to finish it as soon as possible. It is no easy task updating this WordPress themed site, in my opinion. I’m doing by best, though on updating Booktoots’ Healing to satisfy your reading pleasure.


In the meantime, thanks for your patience.


Take some time to look around and read my articles/post on why you are not alone during your total knee replacement surgery recuperation. Or, if you are dealing with other conditions (aka leg length discrepancy, double vision, shortness of breath, etc.) – there may be something here for you. I am a tkr blogger who daily deals with all those issues.


Remember, I share my personal experiences on my tkr blog to help others feel less alone. Feel free to post a comment whenever possible, even when I am updating Booktoots Healing. How is that SEO?


Thanks again for all your support, patience, and fortitude.

It's Easier Said Than Done…

I am still working on my book’s outline. It seems as soon as I start a chapter heading, all kinds of items pop up as subheadings. I keep listing the items, and have more headings to write.  Bullet points work well for me when listing subtopics.  I like bullet points – nice and succinct.

Yesterday, I completed one chapter, for the most part.  I will go back and add more items

Plus, I’m looking over information that I previously wrote in Word.  This needs inputted into Open Office. It’ll get done, just takes some time.

It’s easy to talk about outlines, harder to actually do them.  🙂

Chapter Titles

Having thought of my topic areas (chapter titles), I’ll put them as Roman numerals on my outline.   At this point, I’m not worrying about the order of events. I’m just thinking about different main areas that are important to me.

This step is mainly to get me thinking about the overall picture of my book project.   Once I get these main topics out of the way, all the sub-info will hopefully fall into place. I’ll just keep jotting away.

Book Outline

The next step for me, I feel, is to develop a book outline. Some writers don’t like outlines, some do. I happen to believe, and know, I accomplish much more when I have an outline to follow. Plus, that fact was pounded into my head during my years of education. So….

An outline needs to be developed. They are time-consuming, but will provide me with guidance throughout my book writing project.

The heading is not that important right now. The heading is basically the book title. I haven’t decided on that yet now. That will come later. There is no hurry to determine that upfront.

First, I will need to sit down and think about chapter headings/titles. What major areas do I want to write about in my book?

Second, once I am thinking about chapter headings/topics there is bound to be areas that fall under those headings. These are known as subtopics. Cool….I like subtopics….

Let the outline begin….

P.S. What’s nice about outlines is the fact they can be updated as the writing process begins.
