How to Plan a Book, from Idea to Outline
Lay the foundations for success with time-honoured book planning tips and techniques
Whether you have a dozen book ideas or none when it comes to writing a book, how you execute the idea is as important as the idea itself. Small mistakes during the planning phase early on can become deal-breaking errors in your manuscript during the publishing phase.
That means not just choosing an idea, but the right idea for you and your intended readers. It means adding colour and depth to your idea with brainstorming and research. It means establishing a framework for your research, characters and plot that’ll help you organise your ideas and get your manuscript finished faster.
There’s no one-size-fits-all book planning process that works for every writer, but there are tools, techniques and concepts that successful authors use to execute their ideas effectively.
If you want to know how to turn an idea into a story, this package is for you.
How to plan a Book from Idea to Outline
It’s designed to equip you with the knowledge and time-honoured techniques you need to start writing your book – and lay solid foundations to maximise its success.
It focuses on finding a book idea that will resonate with readers, brainstorming and research techniques to develop that idea, and writing a book outline that helps you finish as well as you started.

Great content. I'm loving the quality of information and find myself much more inspired. The range of tools is fantastic and the handouts alone would be great value at the price. After going through the planning phase I have at least 10 more ideas, plus I now have an understanding of effective outlining. Highly recommend this to anyone.
These courses offer a comprehensive and engaging path for the journey of a writer from the conception of an idea to the publishing of a book. It is very useful to have all aspects tied together. Both fiction and non-fiction are examined, which is effective as there can be an emphasis on fiction alone. The explanations and examples would engender confidence in those who might feel strongly about writing but hesitate to start.
