Plan your non fiction book #26 – Creating a chapter outline

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” A.A. Milne

What is a chapter outline and what are the steps?

[Tweet “Good books don’t just happen, they are designed, or should I say, outlined.”]

Outlining chapters give us a clear structure, a pathway from one chapter to the next, and provides direction, helps to connect each chapter to the overall theme and helps to answer questions that our reader may have. Most importantly, it makes your book easier and faster to write. There are several ways to get to the outline, my favourite is ‘Step it out’, followed by mind mapping. Today we will look at a step by step approach to outlining.
