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.  🙂

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.
