Writing a how-to chapter


For some reason I am finding it fiendishly difficult to structure the chapters in my current how-to book.
I think I found an answer this morning. While reading the Vancouver Sun, I came across a brilliantly structured article by Rick Steves, Plot Your Way Through Europe via smartphone.
Steves uses this structure:
  • Interesting opening
  • Problem stated personally
  • Solution 1
  • Solution 2 
  • Solution 3 etc.
  • Upbeat ending
It could work!!
