The book "The 90-Minute Book Outline" is really well-structured so that you can get your outline done FAST; it begins small with writing down a few key ideas, and then shows readers/writers how to craft the outline by figuring out the niche that you're going to write in. Then do a brain dump and spend just as much time as needed don researching. As R.T. says, many new writers tend to overdo it with research because they think they have to be an authority first.
Write what you know. You can then outline everything in just one sitting if you take care of the essentials first. I really liked the "Reverse Engineering Idea". This strategy alone can save tons of time by knowing what you are going to write long before you write it. The book also has lots of examples that are easy to follow so you can whip through and has your outline done in the 90 minutes as specified by the title.
Another solid point is the emphasis on defining your target audience: when you reverse engineer your book first and focus on your audience that you are appealing to, it is easy to get the outline finished. The section on mind mapping is excellent and also includes some helpful diagrams and links to useful apps. According to the author you can also use your blog and repurpose the content. There is also some tools such as Scrivener and of course a plain whiteboard works just fine for mind mapping.
The Part 3 is extremely useful and if anything it was worth buying the book just for this. It includes 7 ways to be more creative in defining your outline. It runs through defining the target audience once more for more reinforcement and gets into narrowing down your topic so that you don't waste time in the writing.
It gives you another brief overlay of the whole process and takes writers from where they are to where they want to be. Finally, this book is really worth the time and money investment. I would have gladly paid 10.00 for it but got it for just .99 cents. There is a great system here that every author should follow so they can writ faster and better. This especially works for me because I don’t have much time in the day, so having a system to follow like this one is just what was needed
This book is a writer's dream come true.
Book outlining is normally a part of a writing guide or any other book which teaches writing. Then why a separate book?
This is why-
Outlining is the basic and most important part of a book
If you have an outline, consider that your book is finished
This book is further appreciable,
It gives you unfamiliar segmenting insights
Makes you act in an unusual way to gather thoughts
Assimilation, filtering is made simple
The best part is,
The special bonus what we gain from this book
- The next step of building a book
I wholeheartedly recommend
He's got a fun and laid back writing style which I really loved and the book comes with great advice on how to plan and outline your books so you can write them faster and not get overwhelmed in the process.
There are many writing tips sprinkled throughout the book and overall speaking I'd strongly recommend you read this if you're interested in writing a book for the first time.
Yeah that was long, but I couldn’t help myself. I
... Genius or, in the least, exactly what the new or less experienced writer needs. At the beginning of the year, I resolved to write one book a week for the entire year to build a comfortable passive income. An example outline was the last piece I needed to make that happen - and now I have four!
Could you write an even better book on this topic? Yes, I'm certain of it, but thanks go to Red who's shown us exactly where to start to that end. Cheers!
