How to Lengthen Your Nonfiction Book When You Feel Like You’ve Said Everything

  • Is there a step in my process for which I need to offer more explanation to the reader?
  • Could a story, testimony, or example add more impact, interest, or understanding to any of my points?
  • Is it clear to my readers why what I have written matters?
  • Could I interject more why into the rest of the book?
  • Is there more research or additional expertise from secondary sources I can cite and include?
