Do you dread taking the time to write an outline for a book? Would you rather just put pen to paper and start to write and see where it takes you?
Does it feel like a waste of time to begin with the “extra” work of writing an outline?
It’s possible to write a nonfiction book by the seat of your pants, but having an outline helps you know where you are going with your message so you are able to write in a straight line instead of taking time-wasting detours.
Without an outline, you will likely spend extra time cutting, revising, and rewriting your original work. Outlining your book gives you a solid plan that will keep you on track so you can write your book efficiently and with confidence.
