Book Writing Steps


  1. Stalk: Outline, conduct research, pray, take notes and read well.
  2. Stun: Chop book into bite-sized pieces (chapters) and produce 1/3 of desired wordcount.
  3. Slay: Synthesize outline, research and chapters into a completed rough draft.
  4. Slice: Edit and redact rough draft and subsequent drafts.  Place rendered content in a burger pile.
  5. Store: Decide how the book will be preserved and published: e-book, paperback, hardcover, etc.
  6. Serve: Book sales, tour, marketing and distribution
Note: Writing a book is like dropping big game.  Seeing the quarry differs from sucking the marrow.

Think Roland in Season 7.
