Edit the template

Step 1: Open a text editor. On Windows, you could use WordPad, on the Mac TextEdit. Or just use Word.

Step 2: Paste the template that you've just copied into your text editor (Note: you can also paste straight into your forum post but the edit window there is quite small, so using an editor might be easier unless you know what you're doing).

  • Add book introduction (write your own or use Wikipedia; please avoid spoilers. Replace xxxx with your name or the introduction source (3.)
  • Target completion date (4.)
