Outlines serve one main purpose: to keep yourself on track when you’re writing. From my first hand experience, you’re more than likely digging yourself a hole if you don’t use one.

For many writers, it’s far to easy to get off topic my accident. Heck, maybe you might even get confused on what to write next if there no outline in place.

One of the best ways to get started on writing your book is to take a few steps back and create an outline.

When I first started my first book, How To Pack Search, back in 2016, I wanted to get writing the book as soon as possible. After a couple days of writing, I realized that I had made a mistake. My writing seemed to be all over the place, and lacked direction.

Since then, I ALWAYS use an outline when I’m writing a book. If you don’t use one, it will probably end up costing your time and even money.


The key to having a successful book is a great story (or content) that’s well organized. At the end of the day, your readers shouldn’t be completely lost reading your book. That is unless its your goal if you’re writing a mystery novel!
