Once your project plan is in place and your organization steps are complete, it is important to maintain steady progress toward your writing goals. With our Accountability Services, we work alongside you to motivate you and help you stay focused and on pace.

We will check in with you on a weekly basis to monitor your progress in accomplishing your goals. We help you identify any hurdles that might be in the way and determine how we can help you eliminate those hurdles and get back on track as you progress through Phase 3: Production.



Outline Development

The outline is one of the final steps before you begin the actual writing of your book. Your research is done. You have identified your unique aspect of your book topic and organized your thoughts and notes.

Book Elves can now help you develop an outline that will serve as your writing guide. What subtopics will you use as chapter headings? What items or issues will you address in each chapter? How will you introduce each subtopic and conclude each chapter? These are all questions that we will help you answer so that you are comfortable and confident of where you are headed as you begin writing.

When your outline is complete and you are ready to begin writing, we now move to the final step on the Pre-Production Phase: Accountability.

Project Plan Development

Project plan development is the stage where we work with you to put together a workable plan and timetable for writing your book. We start with your target date (when you would like to publish your book) and we work back from there, taking into account how long each step of the process should take. This will be different for each author and each book, depending largely on your writing style and time availability.

For some writers, putting their thoughts to words on a page happens very naturally and quickly. Others prefer to take their time in formulating what they want to say, so the process may take a little longer. Part of the plan development process is identifying your individual writing style and determining how much time you can realistically commit to writing each week.

The plan will include everything from outline development to first and second drafts, editing, rewrites, final draft and every part of the process of getting your book ready to publish.

Now that this initial planning step is taken care of, it’s time to start the creative process with Organizing Brain Dump.
