  7. 7. Your Golden Thread What are the three things you want your reader to take away from your writing? No matter how many pages, they will only retain 3 things? Out of that 200 pages how does each section support the evolution of those three key ideas? This target – only things that support those three key points will greatly reduce the potential for your writing wavering. You keep from being redundant by plotting how each section develops the key themes from a different angle.
  8. 8. Your Voice Why do you do this work? What theories do you relate to? What drives you? These are the ties to your voice – over a body of work the various threads should weave a pattern for your readers. They should feel like they know you when they meet you.
  9. 9. Odd Thoughts… Procrastination Is your house too clean? Your email box empty? All your friends caught up on all your social media? Are you afraid of being fully engaged? Have you begun with a clear view of the end in mind and do you keep it at the forefront of your awareness? Commit to something bigger than yourself and let that pull you forward – it makes it easier to ignore small distractions.
