When author and writing coach Lakisha Baker set out to write her nonfiction book, a 31-day devotional that focuses on goal setting with God, she started by writing down the numbers 1 through 31 on a sheet of paper. From there, she thought about what individuals need to do when goal setting and brainstormed topics and Bible verses to accompany the chapters. Baker also wanted her book to be interactive, so she included action steps at the end of each chapter to engage readers. The information and content contained in the book did evolve throughout the writing process, but the outline gave her a good foundation from which to work.
