The best way to begin writing the book you will self-publish is to create an outline. Once you know the topic you will write about, sit down and create an outline with sample chapter titles, and notes on what each chapter will contain. When you make an outline, you can begin to see how your book will take shape, and begin to shift things around to make it more coherent and flow more effectively for the reader.
*Making an outline may take time, but your book will be better prepared in the end.
