How to Make a Book Template?

Although writing a Book Template takes a while even if you are an experienced author, it does not mean you have to struggle when mapping out the book - here are some tips you may use when working on the book for yourself and others to read and explore:

  1. Come up with the summary of the book - what the main theme is, who the main characters are, where the events take place, etc. While this element can be updated as the story progresses, it is essential to remember your initial vision and not stray too far from it.
  2. While it is up to you to determine the contents of the book, it would look better if you separate the book into chapters for the convenience of a writer. There should be sections whether you are creating a book of recipes putting them into different categories or publishing a fictional story you have written - this structure helps the target audience of the book.
  3. Flesh out the characters. It is obvious main characters require the most work but do not neglect supporting characters either - quite often, they can make or break the scene. Avoid passive characters, protagonists and villains alike - nobody likes a person without their own agenda and purpose.
  4. Build the storyline - there does not have to be a single narrative point you stick to but it definitely helps to determine what the plot is and how the characters impact the story. Once you have a better grasp of the narrative you are constructing, you can start writing episodes and scenes based on the outline you have created.
