  • Think of what you want to write about
  • Think of your topic. Draw it out if you need to on a piece of paper. As a mind map, a sketch, a drawing, a storyboard, whatever you need. Then, think, “Would I want to read about this?”

    Keep them short and concise.

  • Now read the whole thing again.
