A book map is a tool for developmental editing.

What does it look like?

So far, most of the book maps that I have seen and created are in an Microsoft Excel sheet. That does not mean that is the only way you can create one.


What does it contain?

A book map contains at least the following elements:

  • Main Character Arc Development.

  • Timeline.

  • Plot Threads.
