- Write down 3 – 5 of your most compelling stories, ideas, nuggets, mistakes, or experiences you think interest your readers.
- What’s your point? (What’s your unique message you want readers to know that will impact their lives?)
- Write out a working title and a tag line that clearly states what the book is about and what it is designed to solve for readers.
- What’s your conclusion, what you want readers to do, think, believe, act on…? What’s your call to action?
- Write an outline that explains in a sequential order how you will provide benefit to readers.
(Please note that in each of these steps, the word “readers” is mentioned. Your readers are clearly at the heart of your book. In other words, you aren’t, they are.)
