How to Stay Organized When Writing a Book

When you think about writing a book, does it feel like your head might explode?

Don’t stress. Get organized!

Without a plan in place, it’s easy to write thousands of words and start to feel a little confused. (What have you covered already and what still needs to be added? How many interviews do you need and where will you feature them? Which chapters are in progress and what should you work on next?)

If this sounds familiar, you just need to step back and get organized while writing. It’s simpler than you think!

STEP 1: Create a tracking document for all your chapters.
STEP 2: Create a new document for each chapter.
STEP 3: Set a word count goal for each chapter.

And one last tip: never forget to back it up!!
