How To Write A Book

Course Description:

Have you been pondering the idea of writing a book? If so, it is time to get serious about turning your idea into a manuscript. In this course, the main assignment is to write a book proposal and prepare the various elements that go into it. Students will be guided to construct an outline, develop a table of contents, complete a full chapter, create a preliminary marketing plan, and commit to a method of gradually completing their writing project. Writing is hard work. Writing is rewriting. Part of the challenge in the craft is that good writing requires the writer to be painstaking. But the joy outweighs the pain because the inner transformation that happens in the writer lifts the human spirit and makes the heart sing.


Guiding Questions:

  • What is the main message of the book that I am writing?

  • What value am I imparting to my readers?

  • How do I know when I have finished the final revision of my book?
