The purpose of this guide is to help writers learn how to break big writing projects into smaller, more doable tasks.
We all know what it's like to face a huge project with no idea where to start. It's easy to let that paralysis keep you from starting at all. And the bigger and more complex the project, the more there is to keep track of.
The solution is what I call "chunking" - breaking your writing project down into smaller and smaller pieces until you have a list of tasks you can actually do.
The chunking process benefits writers for a host of reasons, from helping you think the project through to determining the most efficient way to do things. Ultimately, chunking is necessary if you want to be able to create useful writing plans and track your progress.
This guide will walk you through the what, why, and how of chunking and provides three in-depth examples to illustrate the process.
