Preparing a manuscript of your book is the last step you should take before attempting to get it published. It is also the least creative and the easiest (provided you have no problem dealing with things like rules and details).
Nonetheless, there are a few questions writers tend to ask about preparing a book manuscript, so we thought we might use this space to present some articles that help answer those questions.
We recognize that nonfiction writers usually come to this stage after they have a publishing contract in hand. For them, it's the final step of the process. Fiction writers, on the other hand, must prepare a manuscript before they approach an agent or publisher.
Regardless what you're writing, we hope you reach the stage where you have to be concerned with this topic. It is a milestone after all.

"Thanks to your "Create a Plot Outline in 8 Easy Steps," I was able to take a story that I simply just fooled around with and went willy nilly all over, into a clearly defined, intriguing battle where two characters fight to keep their relationship intact, and try to find a balance in control of themselves and their lives.
