On July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed. That day became the start of the great American experiment. Our nation’s fathers understood one thing, write for future generations!

Don’t Hit a Dead End While Writing.

Taking the time to outline your book!

For some people, writing is easy and comes naturally. For me, I get too bogged down with making my chapter perfect before I move along to the next. Sometimes, I’m not sure where I’m headed by the time I begin writing the next chapter in the book.

Do you feel that way? Without a proper outline, you’ll hit a proverbial dead-end and your book will never get written.

How to write your book’s proposition.

Know your 'why' before your write!

Every book has a unique goal in mind. That goal should be the driving force behind why you’re writing the book. If we don’t have an end in mind, our book will fall down flat. This is why I encourage people to create a propositional statement for why they are writing their book.

When I wrote, “Grace: What’s So Amazing About It?” I wanted to narrow down my focus so that I knew why I was wanting to write this book. I wanted to make sure I was on target as I began writing that first chapter.
