Writer’s Checklist

I’m debuting my list again! Print it out and keep it handy for writing your book!

Today I am giving you a check list for writing your book. I have created a document that I want to share. I’ve already shared it with those I meet with weekly on the Authors and Writers Meeting but if you haven’t showed your face there, I’m posting this checklist here.  View below:

Writing Checklist

Use this list below to make sure you have taken the correct steps to prepare for writing your book. These steps ARE in order!

  • Gather your notebook full of ideas to help you write this story
  • Decide on the story you are going to write (refer to help me write my book document)
  • Do your character profile. Make sure it’s complete
  • Do your outline. Make sure it’s complete
  • Ask yourself if you’ve developed your characters enough.
  • Start your book with a prologue (optional)
  • Write your book
  • Refer to your outline throughout the book
  • Finish writing your book
  • Add an epilogue (optional)
  • Put it away for a week or two before you start editing
  • Start editing your book
