Save Time When You Write a Summary Sentence

A book seems like a huge project, but in reality it is just a series of small bits of writing, strung together. To write a book, simply break down the whole into smaller parts. Then complete each small part, one at a time.

First you identify the problem your book will solve. Then you zero in on who your readers will be. After that, you do some discovery work to determine the unique niche your book will fill.

Then you put it all together with a summary sentence for your book. In fact, a summary sentence is a powerful tool to use to focus any writing project and get it done sooner.

Save Time When You Write a Summary Sentence

A summary sentence makes the writing process much easier. It allows you to create a book outline and create a writing plan to keep you on track. In other words, your summary sentence saves time. Once you write out your book’s summary sentence (or a summary sentence for any project), you’ll shave off dozens of hours in writing your book.

Use this formula to write your summary sentence:

My book will be the only one on the market that __________________
(Your unique niche or approach)

for _____________________readers
(Your target audience)

who want to know more about ___________________
(The problem your book solves)

to help them _____________________.
(The solution your book presents)
