I’m feeling more confident now about knowing when the book is “finished.” While I didn’t start with an outline, I had an idea of what I wanted the book to cover and I created chapters for each section. What I didn’t realize was how much I would end up taking out. I got very good advice from Dan Janal, at PR LEADS http://www.janal.com. He reminded me that I am not writing the definitive book on organizing.
The catch, for me, is getting in all the information that I think will make it a great book but not making it so comprehensive that it ends up appealing to no one.
