   • Select a story topic that will continue to inspire you throughout the writing process
   • Quickly outline your entire story so that you have a clear idea of how your plot and characters are going to develop before you start writing
   • Draft each act of your story by focusing on specific turning points
   • Keep track of the areas you want to revise without losing your momentum in the middle of your story
   • Relax and have fun–you are, after all, doing something you love


So what are you waiting for? If you've been putting off your book project, let Book in a Month be your guide and find out just how much you can accomplish.
